It’s Not Too Late to Register!

It is not too late to register for the 2017 Youth Rally for the Planet – we are so close to our goal of 40 schools – we just need a few more to sign up. Here is a sample field trip form that might help some of your schools plan the trip.  You’ll have to make a copy and edit a few fields, but it might save you some time. Loading…

Over 1,100 Students and 30 Schools Have Signed Up!

We still have two more weeks until the Second Annual Youth Rally for the Planet and we already have almost twice as many students signed-up as last year.  With all of the recent climate change denial coming out of Washington these days, there is certainly a renewed interest in fighting back – to speak truth to power – and to demand more from our elected officials.  We will be sending out more details about the rally using the email list generated from our sign-up form, so please sign up as soon as you can. Check out this powerful trailer for a reminder of why we rally!

Get Ready to Rally! Help Build Our Maple Mosaic Art Installation

Our Climate, a member of Energy Independent Vermont, will be organizing a huge art installation that will come alive during Youth Lobby Day, April 12th. This is an opportunity to get creative, express yourself, and participate in a true community project! Anyone is invited to create a tile (1ft cardboard square) and mail it to VPIRG (see Maple Mosaic Toolkit for details). All the tiles will become a mosaic in the shape of a maple leaf symbolizing the peoples of Vermont coming together demanding that the government gives nature a voice and does all they can to combat climate change. Our Climate is working with the Emmy-award winning documentary series, Years of Living Dangerously, on a campaign called “Put A Price On It.” Their campaign advocates for a fair price on carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Learn more at putapriceonit.org Host an art making party at your school and share photos with […]
