YPAR Youth Forum with I-SEEED, Los Angeles, CA - Sept 28-29

In collaboration with the Network for a Healthy California, the Institute for Sustainable Economic, Educational and Environmental Design (I-SEEED) and CANFIT, this Southern California Regional Y-PAR Forum was designed to share skills, technology strategies and frameworks that encourage youth to assess and transform their communities so that they can stay and thrive in them.  The youth attending the forum will capture a glimpse of ISEEED’s model of understanding how Race, Space, Place and Waste affect their health and the health of their community. Also, by bringing together young folks across the region who are leading in youth-driven engagement, advocacy and environmental health transformation work, we hope to learn, share and build in a way that will elevate the youth’s role as regional and statewide leaders in community health.

DATES: Friday, September 28 (4pm-9pm) & Saturday, September 29th (9am-4:30pm)

ATTENDANCE: FREE for up to 2 young people and 1 adult ally from each organization/community. To confirm your attendance, please send the names of the adult and youth attending ASAP to Aaron Nakai at: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Spots are limited!

What are the Y-PAR Forum Goals & Objectives?
At the forum, we hope to create a safe space where youth and their adult allies will:
1.) Share successes, challenges, opportunities in YPAR planning, management & implementation;
2.) Describe the cumulative impact on environmental health, nutrition, physical activity and wellness of racial and inequalities over time;
3.) Be engaged with, and have tools for, planning, implementing, carrying out and building action steps using I-SEEED’s YPAR framework;
4.) Be engaged with, and have tools for, strengthening online and offline advocacy campaigns;
5.) Increase knowledge of other youth-led projects, and use tools to link locally or regionally with broader YPAR communities of practice in networks of youth researchers and their adult allies;
6.) Understand how technology, social media and digital tools can be utilized to develop effective ways to collect and analyze data, create and report solutions, and advocate for innovations that eradicate racial, socio-economic, and gender inequalities around environmental health, physical activity and wellness in neighborhoods, schools and communities.

We’re excited for youth to share their knowledge, stories and expertise, and for everyone to learn from each other about the amazing things they are doing to transform their communities!
