About the Event

The Monterey Bay Aquarium Teen Summit will provide an opportunity for teens such as you to further your skills as leaders by implementing a conservation action project in your community. The Teen Summit will offer a variety of conference break-out sessions ranging from the science behind current conservation topics to project planning. By attending the Teen Summit you will build your capacity to become passionate and influential environmental stewards while creating long-lasting connections with other like-mind individuals. The Teen Summit is designed for teens by teens.

Brainstorm, Plan and Share

Design a Conservation Action Project




  • Students must apply in teams of 3–5, and at least one adult advisor. Because the Summit is a sleepover, teams must bring one male and one female adult if the team is mixed genders.
  • Teams must come to the Summit with an idea for an action project.
  • During the Summit, each team will be expected to connect with 1–2 other teams whom they will stay in contact with after the Summit is over.
  • All projects need to be completed by the end of the 2016–2017 school year.
