Eco Teen Action Network


The Global Co Lab Network and Smithsonian Conservation Commons partnered to create the Eco Teen Action Network to empower teens locally and globally to address the United Nations Sustainable Development goals and earth optimism.  The network meets weekly in virtual teen-led gatherings – addressing climate change, plastics, and hunger – working with adult mentors focused on action and promoting positive solutions to make the world a better place!  The Co-Lab is also working with the Smithsonian Affiliations to engage their affiliate museums and teen networks across the USA to be sustainable stewards of the earth!

Our Mission.
