Young environmentalists said “NO” to climate change at the inaugural “YES” conference Saturday, Nov. 2 at MTC headquarters. The day-long Youth for Environment and Sustainability Conference (YES) brought together Bay Area middle- and high-school students who are passionate about alternative transportation and are spearheading efforts in their communities to reduce pollution and congestion. MTC and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) created the YES Conference as part of their Spare the Air Youth Program, recognizing that the under-18 crowd could dramatically impact climate change by adopting cleaner transportation habits.
