LA’s Youth Climate Heroes are the real Stars!
By John Bernhardt
On November 21st, 23 high school students from the LA area gathered at the Environmental Charter High School to spend their Saturday afternoon learning how to really Raise their Voices.
These dedicated, passionate climate heroes worked with ACE’s LA staff and myself to develop their own personal story and unique voice in the climate movement. The training, which lasted 4 hours, equipped these leaders will the ability to go out and inspire others why they too should get involved in the fight to combat global climate change.
In addition to learning this key leadership skill, students and staff also got to explore the ECHS campus which is full of sustainable elements such as rainwater harvesting and campus-wide composting.
If you missed this one, don’t worry! There will be more training sessions in LA, as well as in all regions where ACE is operating come spring. Check here to find the next training in a city near you.
