The Youth Environmental Action Summit (YEAS) brings together youth from across the Lower Shore of Maryland to explore ways they can take action on addressing environmental issues where they live and around the world. The Summit combines informative conference-style sessions and workshops in a fun atmosphere for a powerful day-long educational experience leading to changes in the lives, schools, and communities of young people working towards a more sustainable future. 

The 2020 Summit will take place on Thursday, March 12 from 9-2 at the Ward Museum in Salisbury, MD. Between now and March, students are investigating local environmental issues and designing creative solutions to implement right here in their communities. They'll submit a proposal and present on it at the Summit. Top proposals will be awarded implementation funds thanks to our generous sponsors.
