Join Planeteers from around the world the last weekend of July for the first Blue Climate Action Summit Series. Young leaders are hosting in-person Summits in ten different locations around the world AND the Planeteer Alliance will be hosting a global Summit for everyone who prefers to join virtually — all on the same weekend; all a no cost! These events are inspired and built on the principles of the Nam Lolwe Youth Summit (NALYS) of authentically engaging youth voices in communities around the world (see more below).

The Summits will focus on the crucial role that marine and freshwater ecosystems play in slowing and reversing climate change. Participants will be challenged to develop Blue Climate Action Plans, with the opportunity to network and collaborate with Planeteers working in other parts of the world.

About Planeteer Alliance Blue Climate Action Summit Series

Blue Climate Summit logo + NALYS logo

Oceans and freshwater lakes play a crucial role in slowing and reversing the effects of climate change. As part of our work in accelerating known climate solutions, the Planeteer Alliance is excited to be supporting the Blue Climate Action Summit Series to support Planeteers around the world in taking Blue Climate Action — work to protect and restore our oceans and lakes to help their communities and our planet.

The Blue Climate Action Summit Series is being built in collaboration with the NALYS organizers based on the principles they have identified for authentically engaging young people in communities around the world:

  • Uplifting young people’s voices and ideas
  • Empowering young people to connect with, protect, preserve and restore their water systems. 
  • The importance of story and culture in creating connections
  • The importance of indigenous wisdom in restoring our waterways
  • The interconnectedness of problems facing our planet and the intersectional approach needed to solve them. 

Planeteer Alliance is a program of the Captain Planet Foundation, a US-based NGO with the mission of engaging and empowering young people to be problem solvers for the planet.
