Aquarium volunteers formed Teen Climate Council

After attending the national 2019 Urban Climate Action Network conference, a group of teen volunteers at the Aquarium became inspired to form the Teen Climate Council at the Aquarium of the Pacific.

Since that time, the council has hosted workshops on making environmentally friendly household items, designed community outreach materials, and meets monthly to plan and promote action on climate change and sustainable living among their peers.

The Teen Climate Council is led by the teen participants and advised by Aquarium staff members, who expect the council to help amplify the growing voices of teen leaders who are speaking out and organizing their peers on taking action to combat the effects of climate change.
