Some 500 junior high and high school students from around the region flocked to our offices at the Bay Area Metro Center on the last Saturday in February for the fourth annual Youth for the Environment and Sustainability (YES) Conference. The biggest YES gathering yet was a sell-out weeks before the event. Teen activists presented to their peers on such topics as “Proving That Climate Change Is Not a Hoax” and “Go Away, Throwaway,” exploring our throw-away culture, all with the goal of priming participants to be environmental leaders in their schools and communities.
