Youth Environmental Artivist Summit 2020

What is YEAS 2020? 

The first Youth Environmental Artivist Summit took place in 2016. We are bringing it back to Sonoma County this Memorial Day Weekend in May of 2020! Y.E.A.S. 2020 will take place Saturday, May 23rd – Monday, May 25th at Pomo Canyon Campground in Sonoma Coast State Park. This 3 day – 2 night campout will be filled with workshops provided by leading environmental advocates throughout the bay area and beyond. 

ARTIVISM 

Through my singing and acting and speaking, I want to make freedom ring. Maybe I can touch people’s hearts better than I can their minds, with the common struggle of the common man.Paul Robeson 

Art is a fundamentally human experience. Utilized as a source of hope and inspiration, our purpose is to bring this side of our humanity to light. We persevere by way of creation, and that is something to be celebrated! For this reason, various interactive and introspective activities will be provided throughout this campout! 

ECOLOGY 

Hike out from the old growth redwood trees of Pomo Canyon, through the Sonoma County coastal plains, and down to Shell Beach for an interactive Tidepool program

CAMPFIRE 

Our relationship to fire goes back millions of years. Our campfire programs will include guest spoken word poets and musicians that will help us connect to our inner flame! 

KAYAKING 

Enjoy learning about the watershed you belong to with WaterTreks Eco Tours ! We will launch our kayaks in Willow Creek, paddle down the Russian River and dock in the town of Jenner!

To tell the truth is to become beautiful, to begin to love yourself, value yourself. And that's political, in its most profound way.June Jordan
