    Overview

    The Harvard Chan C-CHANGE Youth Summit on Climate, Equity, and Health brings together motivated young people from different backgrounds around the world to learn from and be inspired by policymakers, climate advocates, scientists, energy innovators, healthcare providers, entrepreneurs, and each other.

    The Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (Harvard Chan C-CHANGE) has joined forces with Putney Pre-College, an initiative of Putney Student Travel, to host another year of youth summer programming on climate, equity, and health in July 2022. Dive into issues of climate change, equity, and public health alongside peers, educators, and leading professionals from the Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (Harvard Chan C-CHANGE). Choose an Action Focus based on your interests and explore how climate change is intertwined with public health, medicine, social justice, economics, and policy. Gain perspective from scientists, health practitioners, policymakers, youth activists, and clean energy innovators at the forefront of tackling the climate crisis. Take what you have learned and transform your ideas into a Community Action Plan, and return home ready to address these issues in your own community. Daily workshops, Action Focus meetings, and guest speaker events take place near Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Harvard Medical School in academic buildings and outdoor settings around Boston. Offsite and field-based learning activities balance classroom and workshop time.
