Lauren Hauser of Youth Noise sent me the following information:
On Saturday, November 15th, 2008 (9am-6pm) YouthNoise and Parsons- The New School of Design, have partnered to launch DROP, a student summit in New York City at the Theresa Lang Student and Community Center in Greenwich Village. This day long summit will serve as the initial step in a 3-12 month long internship for 75 young, emerging social entrepreneurs and activists in the greater New York metropolitan area. Part awareness building, part community building and 100% focused on social change around water, this summit will offer opportunities to dive into the complex world of water issues facing our local, national and global communities. But most importantly, YOU will become part of a growing community of young people focused on this critical issue- and become a part of the solution. If you live in the New York area, please fill out an application here by Wednesday, November 5th.
