The Power of Youth: A Look at the Gulf of Mexico Youth Climate Summit
How to organize and empower youth for our oceans and coasts!
On this episode, hosts Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham welcome Maggie Peacock and Armon Alex to the show to talk about the upcoming Gulf of Mexico Youth Climate Summit (GOMYCS), which will be held virtually July 29-30. Maggie and Armon are the Co-Directors of Youth Engagement for the Gulf Reach Institute and together they co-founded GOMYCS as a way to assemble and amplify youth voices from around the entire Gulf of Mexico. Their hope is for young environmental stewards from around the Gulf of Mexico, including from Mexico and Cuba, to unite for two days dedicated to learning and connecting with fellow researchers, students, and activists about the critical issues facing the Gulf. Maggie and Armon are both undergraduate students at Texas A&M Corpus Cristi (Go Islanders!). For information on how to register for GOMYCS click here!
Its a great conversation with two inspiring youths, only on ASPN!
