The TEDxYouth@MSC “Discovering Sustainability Science” will create a platform for Manhattan School for Children P.S.333 students to share their scientific creativity while celebrating the Greenhouse Project program. Students will present results from their research to answer questions to their environmental concerns. Students will be empowered by the opportunity to spread their thoughts to a diverse live and on-line audience.

“Discovering Sustainability Science” creates an opportunity for 5th to 8th grade youth to talk about about the interactions between humans, technology and the environment. It represents an opportunity to understand that humans can use this knowledge to find long term solutions to environmental problems such as the ones related to water, food, energy, health, and waste.

At the TedxYouth@MSC, young speakers will share the stage with renowned educators and professionals in each of the three areas of the conference: Farmers on the Roof; Sustainable Solutions-Sustainable Cities; and A Sustainable Learning Process.

We hope the TEDxYouth@MSC conference will inspire many communities around the globe to combine knowledge and action for a sustainable future.
