Earth Force CEO Vince Meldrum was featured on Fairfax Virginia’s Public Access TV last weekend to discuss the Student Environmental Action Summit (SEAS). SEAS is a collaborative event among environmental education organizations in the Northern Virginia area. The event serves as a home for our Chesapeake Bay Watershed Caring for our Watersheds finals.
SEAS is a somewhat unique approach to environmental events for student because it focuses on students presenting their ideas for improving communities to adults in order to stimulate change. The Caring for our Watersheds event (which we host in partnership with Nutrien), is but one of several ways that young people are given a platform to outline their visions for environmental improvement. Among the programs featured at SEAS are Young Reporters for the Environment, Envirothon, and the Eco Art Contest.
You can see the full program starting March 1st on the Emerald Planet TV website.
