The Mayor’s Youth Engagement Council for Climate Initiatives (MYECCI) will present projects the group has worked on over the last school year. Students worked with local organizations to help the community and the Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (CAAP).

EcoRise provided grants that funded the students’ projects. The students will showcase their work around complex sustainability challenges, such as water conservation and waste management, in a science-fair format.

This fourth cohort consists of students from each city council district and represents 18 different public, private and charter schools, a city news release said.

“These young people have immersed themselves in the complex challenges involving climate change, and I am excited that they are responding with their own innovative ideas,” Mayor Ron Nirenberg said. “Their voices are important as we work to ensure our community and world are healthy and sustainable, and climate solutions are crucial for their generation.”

MYECCI was established in 2020 to support youth voices in implementing the CAAP, the release said.
