YES conference is a place where youth can meet and discuss things happening in our environment. The day was very enlightening as we talked to empowered youth willing to learn about the environment. We went in to different conferences in which we were taught about the environment by our peers. During the day there were also many prizes to be won. Our group member also won the grand prize

      The many booths and workshops were extremely beneficial such as the bike workshop and air filtration workshop.Many of these workshops told us about small things we can change in our lives  to make a difference. I have attended many of the work shops and all of which inspired me. I can’t wait to see hot other things people will bring to the conference next year.
