10 amYoung Students for Climate Action!
The younger generations are going to be the most affected by climate change, and the current political powers are an older generation that are ignoring our rights to be secured a future! While many college students are working towards living sustainably there is a lack of public knowledge about climate science and just what the future will hold if we do not take action today! Lets come together and ignore the confusion the media is trying to create about climate change and the scientific facts behind it. This is an educational, and motivating event seeking to bring together everyone from the community to learn about the truth of climate change, and be inspired to take control and mitigate now! Contact Larissa at ldehaas@willamette.edu for more information. In harmony with 350.org's Connect the Dots global action.
