What is CEAD?

Connecticut Environmental Action Day (CEAD) is a one-day conference that seeks to inspire students to take the #ClimateChangeChallenge and then post their actions using #ExtendtheChange to encourage friends and families to do the same.

CEAD is hosted by UConn 4-H Youth Development – a program of UConn Extension. CEAD is designed to inspire environmental action through a one-day event for middle school students in Storrs, digital curriculum in their classrooms, and by having students submit their environmental action ideas to the Climate Change Challenge Competition.

Students are invited to share their environmental action ideas on Social Media using #ClimateChangeChallenge and using #ExtendtheChange to encourage friends and family to do the same.

The 2020 event was Friday, February 28th at UConn-Storrs.
