Tribes empower students to support global environmental sustainability

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes’ (CSKT) Environmental Protection Division within the Natural Resources Division has developed a Climate Change Strategic Plan and established a Climate Change Oversight Committee. The committee spearheaded the creation of a youth-led group called EAGLES (Environmental Advocates for Global and Local Ecological Sustainability). The purpose of this effort is to help empower interested tribal and other local youth to become engaged and informed citizens regarding environmental and climate change issues at the reservation, state, regional, national and global levels.
