I got to hang out with a few local teens and find out some about the sustainability of the Washington state, the environmental impact of our daily activities, and the effects of our activities on the environment. This was a great opportunity to learn and get some real world application and perspective on the subject.
I’m sure we also learned a lot about how to do our part to better the world. To quote one of the girls, “The big thing is recycling your water bottles. Every single person in the world needs to recycle their water bottles.
Well, that’s great, but what about the rest of the world? What about recycling our trash? Most of us don’t recycle our trash which is why the average American wastes 400 pounds of plastic a year. If you’ve got a bunch of plastic bottles that you don’t really want, throw them away anyway.
In case you were wondering, the big thing that everyone at the conference was talking about was the “lifestyle.” I was shocked to hear that the Washington youth summit had been organized entirely by women and was largely about women’s groups. Of course, women also seem to be the ones who are most willing to take on the environment and the work it takes to make that happen.
As it turns out, the biggest waste in the world doesn’t just involve plastic. It’s also the one thing that has a hard time getting fixed. The best-known example of this is the pollution in China. The government there seems to be just as bad as the rest of the world in terms of its attitude towards the environment. In the past couple of years, they’ve set up a new “green building standard” for construction.
That’s right folks, the biggest waste in the world is that you are in the world. The best way you can help clean up this mess is to get out there and do something. We recently created a “Youth Summit” on the Environment that brought together hundreds of young people from all over the country. There we got to meet with some of the leading green activists and young people from different communities. We also got to learn about a number of exciting events happening in our area.
We hope to do this every year so that we have more of an opportunity to work together to make a difference. The summit was a great success so we plan on doing it again next year.
The event was held on June 18-20 at the beautiful Washington DC Youth Center. The center is a beautiful facility that brings together a variety of age groups from different communities. It’s a wonderful place to meet and learn. I can’t wait to see what the new event holds for us next year.
I’m excited to see what the new event will hold for us. The Summit is really a place where we can come together and learn about the environment. We also talked about some of the more exciting ideas we may be able to do to help the environment one day.
The Summit is a great event that provides a place for youth to come together and talk about their community in a safe environment. It also acts as a fundraiser for the center itself and also helps us get the word out to the youth of the town.
