Youth Perspective and Solutions on Water Quality and Community Engagement
Speakers: The 8th grade at Hyla Middle School on Bainbridge Island

At Hyla Middle School, 8th grade students have the opportunity to explore issues that impact their lives through our global education curriculum. This year, students have focused their energies on a wide array of issues including environmental and inclusivity issues of the Puget Sound area, and building community for youth. Through their middle school lenses, you will be inspired by their research and personal insights into these topics and their solutions for change. Their goal is to bring attention to strategies and solutions that can serve as potential models for other communities. As teens, they understand the need for change and see themselves as active agents in that change. This session will be valuable for reframing design thinking to include a youth perspective and for anyone who works with youth.
