THE YOUTH CLIMATE SUMMIT

A year after the historic youth climate march, the youth strike again! Join Zero Hour in This Is Zero Hour: The Youth Climate Summit in Miami, a frontline community. The Summit will be held from July 12 – 14 at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Miami Airport & Convention Center, 711 NW 72nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33126.

The team chose to host the summit in Miami because of the huge disasters Miami is already facing and will continue to face with worsening climate change. With two degrees Celsius of warming, the entire city will be underwater. Also, as the ocean gets warmer, it is causing toxic “red tide” algae blooms, which can irritate respiratory illnesses and cause other negative health effects in humans.

With the summit, we hope to uplift the citizens of Miami, and train more young people to be effective climate justice advocates.
