Engaging youth and Cross-Organizational Success in the Environmental Movement
Jianan Zhang is currently a high school student, and has been working for We Are Nature as the Volunteer and Recruitment director for the past two years. Through the We Are Nature cleanups that she organizes, over ten thousand pounds of trash have been collected across South Florida.
Jianan’s presentation will emphasize how to spread awareness and engage the community, particularly in regards to youth under 18 years old. She will also be talking about how partnerships with other organizations and how understanding the issue of environmental conservation as a part of a larger web can help increase organizational mission-driven success.
