Join us for the 4th Annual Nashville Youth Climate Summit on March 4th!

In coordination with the Mayor’s Youth Council and the Oasis Center, the Cumberland River Compact will host the 4th Annual Nashville Youth Climate Summit. The Nashville Youth Climate Summit is a chance for high school students from across the county to learn, share, connect, and to take action. With the help of youth leaders, we’ve worked to identify local scientists, activists, and nonprofit leaders to lead collaborative sessions on climate change impacts and solutions.
