Participants at the Climate Advocacy Institute this past July used their creativity to share their ideas and create projects to spread environmental awareness. Now, these students are using their ingenuity to promote sustainability and spread the word about green living in their own communities and beyond.
On October 6th, eleven graduates from the institute helped kick off the school year at Bloomfield College by sharing the 350 message with students during the convocation ceremony. Their creative, informative and witty presentation engaged students, faculty, administrators and board members while encouraging participation in 350's Day of Action and the Green Hearts Environmental Movement.
This project is just one of the ways in which CAI students have been taking action in their communities. Since the institute, participants have been spreading the word at youth camps, forming groups for the 350 movement, and preparing for the Day of Action on October 24th.
The 350 movement is a green movement seeking legislature that will help reduce the world CO2 level to 350 parts per million; and 350's Day of Action will involve people from all over the world taking a stand for a safer climate future. For more information on this event, and how you can participate in the 350 movement, check out the 350.org or the Climate Advocacy Institute website.
