Calling All Teens to the 12/11 TeenTechSF Global Youth Summit!

Join us on Saturday, December 11th, to hear from youth climate activists, public policy experts, and the CEO of the world’s largest environmental nonprofit, on how we can amplify our voices as youth to leverage tech for climate action!

At this year’s TeenTechSF Global Youth Summit: “Tech for the Environment: A Closer Look at Planet Earth”, we’ll be exploring the work of a teen representative invited to the recent UN Climate Conference, the newest San Francisco Climate Action Plan unveiled this month, the global perspective of teens working on the ground in India and Indonesia, and global NGOs who are making bold investments for a more sustainable and equitable feature. We’re proud to be partnering with the worldwide #HourofCode to offer hands-on coding workshops so that you can turn your big ideas into tech solutions for the environment!

Featuring leaders Ali Khan, a youth representative for the recent UN climate conference, Mark Tercek, former CEO of The Nature Conservatory - the world’s largest environmental nonprofit, who advises global NGO advisor, Shawn Rosenmoss, SF Department for the Environment, Kamille Lang at San Mateo County Office of Sustainability, and video messages from Youth in Indonesia and Hara Jeevan in India. Local youth climate activists joining us from Carlmont Green Team and Youth vs Apocalypse. Our panels will give you the opportunity to hear from and ask questions directly to those involved in the most recent examples of tech for environmental impact.

Along with our keynote speaker, a panel of local public policy leaders, and messages from teen leaders, Global Youth Summit participants will also have the opportunity to learn how youth can make a difference with the 2021 TeenTechSF Civic Hackathon winners and finalists presenting tech solutions to problems including social justice, sustainability, and distance-learning. Teens from around the world will come together online to learn about the intersection of technology and the environment, and its impact during COVID-19. This is a gateway tech experience for many and we are proud to welcome students who are new to tech and coding! As part of the event, you'll also be able to participate in interactive, beginner-friendly STEM workshops including Python Turtle Graphics, Prototyping and UI Design, Video Game Design with PyGame, 3D Computer-Aided Design with Onshape, and Image Detection with Machine Learning.

Like all TeenTechSF events, this event is completely FREE, but advance registration is required! Open to all students 13-18 years old -- no previous coding experience necessary.
