High School BOLD

Thursday, February 19, 2015
8:15 am – 3:30 pm

Today’s youth are the leaders of tomorrow. We would like to bring them together to learn, discuss and initiate. We particularly want to hear what they have to say about:

Helping Protect Our Environment

High School students give us their BOLD ideas on the sorts of change they’d like to see, whether it’s related to:

• Managing waste – recycling and renewable resources
• Transportation
• Green buildings – sustainable building materials and LEEDS standards
• Protecting our rivers and lakes
• Energy efficiency and new energy sources
• Conservation/sustainability
• Food consumption (The 100-mile diet)
• Carbon credits
• Water re-use
• And more …

Each school is asked to:

• Select two (2) students as panelists to share their BOLD ideas with the audience (each to speak for 5 minutes maximum)

• Bring up to 10 additional students to the conference as audience members.

The tentative schedule for the day is:
