Remember when we were young and thought we could change the world? Well teens across the country are not holding their breath for a more sustainable future, they are taking action towards one with Teens Turning Green. The national movement is both relevant to teenagers lives -- think prom dresses, organic beauty products, and dorm rooms -- and connected to the environmental issues of our time. Teens Turning Green is uniting key industry players, students, teachers, and community members in California early next month for their 5th Annual Summit to educate, inspire, and activate change:

The summit takes place from February 5-6, 2010 at Marin Academy (1600 Mission Avenue). Adam Werbach, CEO Saatchi & Saatchi, will keynote the event, joined by panelists Stacy Malkan, co-founder National Campaign for Safe Cosmetics; Karen Stewart Brown, Stewart & Brown co-founder; Summer Rayne Oakes, model, author, and activist, and other leading fashion, beauty, and other leading industry professionals.
