2018 YES Conference

Join us February 24, 2018 to participate in a jam-packed day of fun and interactive sessions with youth from all over the nine Bay Area counties. Come and learn from other teens on ways to collaborate/share ideas on sustainability and climate solutions. This is a great way to practice your presentation skills, meet other teens that care, and have fun.

The Youth for the Environment and Sustainability (YES) Conference is a program of Spare the Air Youth, a partnership of the Bay Area Air Quality Management District and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission.

If you are between 12-18 years old, we hope to see you there!
