Audit: San Jose roads crumbling toward bottom of Bay Area rankings -- costly fixes needed

Youth for the Environment and Sustainability (YES) Conference Returns to the SF Bay Area

February 23, 2015

On February 7, 2015, middle and high school students from around the SF Bay region came together to discuss transportation issues; learn how their decisions can impact climate change; and share ways of encouraging others to walk, bike, take transit or carpool to school. The Youth for the Environment and Sustainability (YES) Conference was designed to encourage youth advocacy, communication and leadership skills. Participants had opportunities to share their success stories, participate in a bicycle workshop and leadership training sessions, and learn from speakers how to best make the case for sustainable transportation.

This year’s keynote speakers were Serah Almeyda, a student at Windsor High School and an engaged community activist, and Nick Laskowski, a co-founder of San Jose Bike Party, a monthly ride of 2,500 people. Check out the highlights from the gallery in the photo gallery.
