America and Canada's youth are calling for five days of demonstrations to jumpstart the second semester of the Campus Climate Challenge and put the heat on a new U.S. Congress and a returning Canadian Parliament to begin aggressive national power shifts on global warming.
The Campus Climate Challenge aims to build a generation-wide movement to stop global warming. “The Challenge” is a 3-year initiative to engage one million students at 700 U.S. and Canadian high schools, colleges and universities in efforts to promote climate solutions. By making their own schools models of climate responsibility, students can lead the way to a larger societal transition to a clean energy economy.
Showing An Inconvenient Truth on campus provides a naturally rich opportunity for Ohlone College to promote our own efforts to address the climate crisis, and, more generally, promote a culture of sustainability on campus and in the community.
