Kids And Teachers Are Teaming Up To Fight Climate Change

Climate change is an undeniable reality that we now have to face the consequences for. This past year, there has been quite a bit of success as far as resolutions go, as they have framed congress’ inactivity on the issue as a sign of neglect. What is the best way to raise youth awareness for climate change and to fight it at a congressional level? The Youth and Educator Climate Advocacy Summit taking place next month has a plan.

At their upcoming event, hand-delivered climate change resolutions will make their way to all 535 congressional offices across the country. They want their non-partisan message to ring loud and clear, “Congress has a moral imperative to act quickly and boldly on climate change to limit harm to students and future generations.” There will be a lot of great things going on during the event including both a bipartisan and nonpartisan panel as well as a press conference. Educators and youth alike will be attending, all in support of the same cause- climate change awareness. Schools for Climate Action (youth-adult run organization which encourages schools to speak up about climate change) and Young Voices for the Planet (a non-profit organization which promotes the youth to take action in limiting their effect on climate change and to be proactive in their community) are co-sponsors of the event.

It is projected that for every adult, there will be two youths participating at the event and so far it is anticipated that there will be over 300 attendees. Among the participants, there will be educators, youth activists, and children welfare experts.

If you wish to participate in this event, it will take place on March 28 from 9 A.M. to 3 P.M. at the U.S. Capitol, room TBD. Between 9 and 12 will be the kick-off, press conference, and panels. This will be followed by delivering resolutions between 12 and 3.

Kids and teachers are teaming up to fight climate change and it might be time for the rest of us to follow the suite and do our part.

How will you do your part to spread the word about climate change? Would you like to participate in this event? Let me know in the comments below.
