Amp Up NYC Student Summit 3/27

Green Umbrella has been working hard on this with students from colleges around the city for a few months now – we’d love to see you there!

Calling all student environmental organizers, activists and advocates around NYC!

It’s time to unite our earth saving energies and come together as a united environmental student movement!

Please register TODAY for the Amp Up Student Summit that will bring together student environmentalists from campuses all around NYC on Saturday March 27th from 9:30 – 4pm at City College.


This summit will bring together student environmentalists from colleges around NYC to meet one another, share skills, collaborate on projects, and prepare for Earth Day. The summit will be focused on providing students with the information and skills needed to take action on some of the most pressing environmental issues facing us today.


The day will begin with interactive community-building and networking in the morning. Pizza picnic lunch kicking off the afternoon along with skill-sharing and educational workshops. Then a party with music and fun into the evening.


The summit will also be the launch of the Amp Up Student Network – a city-wide student network forming to connect environmental student organizers from campuses around NYC. This network is intended to generate the energy and momentum to build a more interconnected and interactive environmental student movement in NYC, allowing for more collaboration as well as sharing of knowledge, skills and resources.
