YouthCaN: Youth Connecting and Networking

Hello Educators and Youth Leaders!
YouthCaN NYC 2014 will take place at the American Museum of Natural History (in New York City) on Monday, April 28, 2014. Each year the conference attracts as many as 1,200 youth and educators from around New York City, the US and the world – countries such as Lebanon, Algeria, Russia, Senegal, Argentina, Indonesia, the Philippines and many more have participated in past YouthCaN conferences. The conference is a rare opportunity for environmentally inclined youth to meet one another and share their ideas and projects. It will be a wonderful learning experience. The American Museum of Natural History and iEARN are collaborative partners in supporting the youth who work year round on their projects and organizing this celebration of youth taking action and an interest in their world.

All YouthCaN workshops are for students and by students. Workshop topics explore a wide variety environmental issues. This year's topics included: recycling, habitat protection and restoration, water monitoring, renewable energy, school gardening, transportation and many more (click here for a list of this year's workshops within the registration materials).

For those who will be in New York for the whole weekend, on Saturday, April 26th the YouthCaNers will lead Activity Day. This will be an opportunity to meet some of the other young people attending the conference and explore some greener part of the New York area that you might not know about!

Since 1992, YouthCaN has provided groups around the world with a support system for environmental endeavors and has served as a launching pad for new environmental ideas. Through the use of an online forum, youth can meet and keep in touch with others from different parts of the world. YouthCaN aims to offer students with tools to learn from, connect with, and motivate each other.
