Putney Climate Justice Conference

The Putney School Sustainability Committee is hosting a Climate Justice Conference for students on April 29. The committee found that many youth summits and other events for high school students in the New England region concerning climate change are less focused on climate justice and more focused towards helping students organize sustainability initiatives such as new recycling programs and other waste management at their schools. These are important, but the meetings fail to recognize minorities that are most affected by climate change and inclusivity within the environmental movement. The committee decided to create a conference that embodies climate justice principles in order to create the most effective environmental movement led by frontline communities.
