Pittsburgh Youth Global Town Hall - Climate, Gender and Sustainability

From Local Activism to Global Reform

On the eve of the Pittsburgh Global Town Hall hosted by the University of Pittsburgh, Global Voice, World Workable Trust, and the Heinrich Böll Foundation, the University Center for International Studies will host a workshop and town hall discussion specifically for area middle and high school students. The goal is to focus on the concerns of the next generation of globally-minded citizens, while exploring avenues for climate activism. How do you turn local activism into global reform? What role do the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) play in these discussions? How are gender equality and climate action related?

In activities throughout the day, students will explore models of activism and engagement. A sustainability presentation and workshop at the end will direct discussions toward next steps, which will then be presented the next day at a live-streamed Global Town Hall on Pitt's campus.

Join us and make your voice heard in time for the high-level climate summit in New York City on September 23, 2019. Participation in the event is free and open to students and teachers grades 6-12. Pre-registration is required. Participants should bring their own brown bag lunch their own reusage water bottles.
