Offshore Wind Youth Action Program

Young activists 

 The Offshore Wind Youth Action (OWYA, pronounced “Oh yeah”) program is an initiative to empower young people across New York State to learn about offshore wind as a tool in our fight against climate change and to support clean energy action in their communities helping to deliver the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act’s clean economy and climate equity goals.

The OWYA program will be supported by a NYSERDA toolkit of resources, including virtual lesson modules and educational materials such as hands-on projects, connections to resources and information, and a how-to-guide to help advance offshore wind to combat climate change.

The OWYA program kicked off with a public Listening Session on November 5, 2020. The webinar brought together leaders, activists, and advocates working at the intersection of youth leadership and environmental justice to explore the role of youth leadership in advocating for a just transition to a clean energy economy, including the development of offshore wind.
