More than 15,000 people in Nevada County fall under the age of 14. Another 15,000 are between the ages of 15 and 30. Many of these youth do more than tweet or rally to participate in a good cause. They tether their skills to tangible outcomes and study solutions to local and global challenges, say members of the education committee arm of the Nevada County Climate Change Coalition.

The Nevada County Climate Change Coalition supports activities that help young residents use their talents to bring about positive change. Its upcoming presentation, “Young Change Agents in Action,” will highlight actions of the Nevada Union High Eco Club and the NC-CCC’s Climate Change Agents Camp 2016 (a merit-based scholarship camp). The public can learn about these youth-centered programs and discuss additional community initiatives at the meeting, which will take place at 7 p.m. on Oct. 20 at the Unitarian Universalists of the Mountains, at 246 S. Church Street in Grass Valley. Light refreshments will be served.

Participants are also encouraged to view exhibits sponsored by the NC-CCC and its education committee at the upcoming Altar Show, scheduled for October 29 through November 6 at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. Both events are free to the public.
