We are encouraging all Alaskan youth to join us for the Alaska Forum on the Environment, February 4-8, 2013, at the Denaʼina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage.
The largest environmental conference in Alaska brings together rural and urban, industry and private, agency and public, students and scholars, youth and elders from around the world. With a diverse agenda, the conference offers more than 150 presenters, 80 sessions and 4 special keynote events. Session topics include climate change, energy and alternative energy options, invasive species, fish and wildlife habitat, arctic development, environmental justice and many more.
The Alaska Forum on the Environment provides unique opportunities to access the wide range of attendees and presenters that typically attend. Youth and young adult participants will be able to interact with potential mentors and peers, sharing experiences, asking questions, and learning more. Participants will be encouraged to build linkages with resources represented at the conference that can help them become more engaged in issues important in their own communities.
Resources will be made available to help groups find
funds to cover travel and lodging costs. Special registration fees will be
established for youth and young adults participants, and in some cases these cost may be waived.
More information on the agenda and special events will be made available on this web site as it becomes available. Questions may be directed to Laurel Devaney at firstname.lastname@example.org, 907-456-0558.
