Outdoor Nation Youth Summit and Festival
Outdoor Nation Youth Summit and Festival has officially launched and invites you to join their movement. Over the past several years, a growing grassroots movement has emerged to reconnect young people and the outdoors in an effort to inspire healthy active living and environmental stewardship. Young people today have considerable power and influence – politically, socially and financially -- and are developing new ways to coordinate, collaborate and communicate for the issues they care about. Ultimately, to succeed in reconnecting young people with the outdoors, young people must help lead the way – spurring a cultural movement where youth are empowered to redefine, reclaim and rediscover the outdoors. That is exactly what Outdoor Nation is hoping to accomplish.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED: Share this application with your networks: Facebook, Twitter, emails, friends and colleagues and encourage them to apply.
On June 19th and 20th, Outdoor Nation will convene 500 young people from all over the country in Manhattan's Central Park. During the Summit they will set the agenda, lead the conversations, and develop action plans. Held in the world’s media capital and most popular urban park, the Outdoor Nation Youth Summit will harness the passion, energy and ideas of a new generation that is eager to influence the future and stand up for change. Summit delegates will not only craft and deliver their message of change to the country, but strengthen the outdoor youth movement by infusing new ideas, skills and connections in a solution-driven environment.
The goal of the Summit is to motivate and mobilize hundreds of thousands of young people nationwide to reclaim the outdoors for this and future generations. We need your help to get the word out about this opportunity and during the event.
Review the application, share it with the young people that you work with around the country and ensure that their voice is heard when 500 young people converge in Central Park this June.
