The Global Co Lab Network and Smithsonian Conservation Commons partnered to create a virtual network of teen activists to fight climate change, hunger, and plastics called the Eco Teen Action Network.  The three teen-led Hubs of the Network presented their year’s work at the 2020 April Earth Optimism Summit, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.  Watch their presentations and videos for each Hub:  The Plastics Hub presented their work here (go to 26:11), led by our teen Ambassadors Krithika and Kayla.  The Climate Hub presented theirs here (go to 28:28) led by our teen Ambassadors Marieka and Alex.  And finally our Hunger Hub presented their work here (37:37), led by our teen Ambassadors Sydney and Ashley.  To learn more about the Hubs, see here.

The Eco Teen Action Network’s Hubs are expanding their membership and invite teens across the world to join them!  Encourage teens to attend a monthly orientation on a Saturday.  To find the date and register, visit our calendar of events.
