“We are so excited to welcome our 2022 Future Blue Youth Council—an incredible community of young leaders, artists, and scientists—who will have the opportunity to create real, tangible change on critical environmental issues. As this work can often be arduous and overwhelming, the Council will also be a welcoming and uplifting space of support, refuge, and friendship.” ~Linda Cabot, Founder & President
