ACE Educators Bridget and Michael are on a march to the 2010 ESPN Winter X-Games, in Aspen, Colorado! We’re going to be delivering the ACE presentation to over one thousand students in 5 schools in the Roaring Fork Valley and rockin' it at the X-Games on Thursday!

This video, I must say is very empowering to me. Just from watching and hearing the lyrics of this song makes you want to do whatever you possibly can to make a contribution to the change. He relates it back to the dream of Dr. King at it makes so much sense; it makes you think like, "Are we as people really following the dream?"
The 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti about a week ago and the 6.1 magnitude aftershock came this morning! These people are in major need of money for surgery. They need pain killers to numb the pain of bones being popped back into place or limbs amputated...yikes!
While earthquakes are not caused by climate change we can see how a country with so little resources is being seriously impacted. And, to me this connects because scientists agree that the world's poorest countries will be hardest hit - at least at first - by the impacts of our changing climate.
That's a slightly exaggerated statement, but Copenhagen was definitely a huge disappointment
For those of you who were unable to attend (including myself) I found this quite entertaining, again everyone is poking jokes at our climate leaders. But I honestly can't blame them.
Terrae here, checking in about my action team, the YACC!
So although I was not able to check-in last week about my first AT meeting, it went awesome! The students really liked the first day’s lesson. It involved some basic teachings of global warming along with two videos and a group activity. It was a huge success to start this action team on a good note.
Coming off of a great Leadership and Presenter Training on January 9th, including the collaborative efforts of 5 ACE | Chicago Partners and 30 amazing students from around the region, we're reaching out to our partners and communities again!
