Do Something - August 14, 2017

This week Youth Beat heads out into the community and features some local happenings and organizations. First we talk with Just Columbus Festival organizer Akeem from Whetstone High School about the student-organized conference held at Fort Hayes this spring. The conference featured sessions on social justice, the economy, youth radio, the environment, infant mortality, poverty, and more--and what we can do about it. We meet BE the Brand folks who inspire us all to be our true selves. We also celebrate National Park Rx Day by taking a hike to Chadwick Arboretum on the OSU campus. Spending time outdoors this summer? We learn about Leave No Trace principles and how we can be more respectful of outdoor environments.
