About the Summit
High school students from around the country will converge at Center for the Environment in Salisbury, North Carolina, to learn the specific skills that environmental leaders need to create a sustainable world, while developing their own unique talents. At Redesigning Our Future: A National Environmental Summit for High School Students, sustainability designers, scientists, and engineers from the Rocky Mountain Institute, as well as Catawba College faculty, will emphasize whole systems thinking, helping students become collaborative leaders and effective communicators. These students will return to their schools and communities empowered to have a tangible impact.
Students will explore the concept of environmental leadership through the perspective of their own skills and interest in the arts, humanities, education, history, business, science, and technology. They will learn how essential elements of these varied disciplines - creativity, expression, innovation, observation, experimentation, and teamwork - are critical to their effectiveness as environmental leaders.
