Climate advocates make their presence on Google Earth

The participants of the 2009 Climate Advocacy Institute, today’s youth advocates against climate change, shared their photos and stories on Google Earth as part of their final project in the New Media track of the Institute.

Learn more about these amazing youth leaders by visiting Google Earth and searching for “Climate Advocacy Institute.”

This year’s institute focused on spreading the message of global climate change. To learn more about this issue, students participated in one of these three core tracks: British Parliamentary Debate and Argumentation, Journalism and New Media for Advocacy, and Performance and Art Advocacy.

The Climate Advocacy Institute is an initiative of the International Debate Education Association, the Open Society Institute, and Bloomfield College in partnership with IndyAct and Tactical Tech. The three-week Institute takes place every late June/early July, and gathers high school and college students and teachers in an effort to equip future leaders with the advocacy skills necessary to combat climate change in their communities.
