Hey hey! Just last weekend I was down in Chapel Hill, North Carolina at Carolinas Power Shift, one of the 11 youth climate change summits taking place around the country this month. I can now proudly tell you that there are some AMAZING youth climate leaders in North and South Carolina!!
Check out this video to get a feel for where they all came from and what they care about:

I visited schools in Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Greensboro, and Stokes County and at each school, I was BLOWN AWAY by the young leaders I met.
Listen to Eliza Oldac of Chapel Hill High School's Green Tigers club talk about why she cares about climate change and the work she's doing to protect her generation's future:
Makes you wanna get out there and start changing the world too, doesn't it?
