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!
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.
