DRAFT Invitation:
Online Youth Climate Action Summit:
Learn from Leading Environment Influencers
about how to
Increase Your Impact on Climate Change

If you are concerned about climate change and want to learn how to increase your impact in this area, this summit is for you – During our online summit, leading environmental influencers (eg. link) from around the world will explain how you can increase your impact through social media to push for action on climate change.  Given below are some of the influencers who will be speaking:
1. Mike Moll, Managing Director & Founder of Social Media House,
2. and others: To be Announced
Date: ________ Time: ________
Location: Online at www.ClimateSAN.org/ycas (soon to be live link).
There is already a very large and growing amount of visual information  online that can be shared to inform others about climate change.  Since the volume of this visual information is so large, you can play an important role by selecting the visuals (images and short videos) that you think are the most interesting and sharing them with your network.  By doing this along with building a following on social media, you will essentially become a climate change “influencer” and significantly increase your impact.

To provide you with an introduction about the visual information that you can share now with your network and if you are interested, how you can begin your journey to become a climate change “influencer”, we have prepared the information below.

Some example YouTube channels that contain many videos, which you can view and share with your network:

For a summary of the information we assembled, see: Climate Action Resources, which contains links to free online videos and information to help young people increase support for action on climate change.
Additionally, you can create your own social media presence, such as a YouTube channel or Instagram profile, and share the information that matters to you most.  Your efforts can empower and encourage many other young people to persuade their family and friends about the need for action on climate change.  This is very important since research has shown that educating children may be the best way to reach parents who don’t seem to care about climate change.
To further empower your audience to push for action on climate change, the visuals can be linked to more detailed information.  For example, the climate visual shown below is also placed on its own webpage that includes links to more information about the topic of this video (coastal flooding).  An example link is this Sea Level Rise Viewer by the NOAA Office of Coastal Management, which enables a person to select a coastal area and view the expected water level for a selected year.
