I attended the 5th Annual International Youth Leadership Summit from Thursday to Saturday which was hosted by Earth Eco.
The summit was mainly focused on the conservation of our oceans and to how to save 30% of our oceans by 2030. There were over 400 people who attended from 44 countries. There were many sessions on different topics such as Environmental Advocacy, Science Communication and Leadership and Skill Building which were lead by some amazing speakers, one of them being the National Geographic explorer, Paul Rose.
I am at a loss for words to try describe how much of an impact this summit was on me, I have never felt so supported and motivated to help save our Earth. I have learnt so much more than just conservation of our ocean, I have learnt how to be a better leader for the Treverton EarthCare group and how to communicate and raise awareness about the Climate crisis more effectively.
This was such an honor for me to attend and I felt quite emotional when it ended to be honest. I would like to thank Mrs Snow and Mrs Beddy for giving me this opportunity and their support.
