What's Your DOT?

It's 2010 - the dawn of a new decade (not to be confused with 2012!). Over here at ACE, we've made some green resolutions to kick off a decade of change and we wanna know: what's your green resolution of 2010?

To make a great green resolution, you don’t have to go live in a cave or wear only hemp clothing, you just gotta choose a DOT - a Do One Thing. A DOT is one thing you'll do to have a positive impact on our planet.

Here are a couple of DOTs to get your gears turning:

Pics for Thought

Hmmm yeah what if we do create a better world "for nothing"?!

YACC Dispatch - #1

Hey guys this is Terrae one of the ACE interns here in the Bay Area checking in. I'm here to give updates about my project and action team. Its called the YACC which stands for Youth Activisim against Climate Change.

ATTN: Bay Area Climate Leaders

Wonder what really went down in Copenhagen? Hear it from your peers, not the politicians!!

Meet up with the students of SF who went to Copenhagen in December for the UN Climate Negotiations and hear their stories (the good, the bad, the ugly, the fun in Denmark...) as well as enjoy some tasty snacks!

When: Next Weds, January 13, 2010 - 6pm-7pm

Environmental Invention!

By Liz Gomez - ACE Intern, Houston

Want to be the coolest kid at school? No need to buy the hippest clothes, or toys. You don’t need to be the varsity athlete or have the best car. You need a SOLAR BACKPACK!

"We Can't Re-Freeze the Greenland Ice Sheet"

Ok, I know this is not exactly breaking news -- but this news about our world's ever decreasing icy lands seems worth passing along if only because of this striking map of the entire globe and ice loss. Check it out!

Alec Loorz: At the end of Copenhagen

By Alec Loorz - ACE's Youth Leader

Exhaustion. Excitement. Disappointment. Hope. Confusion. Contentment. All emotions I felt on my last day in Copenhagen.

I’m home now, and what an adventure this has been. Despite the problems with the final agreement (which I’ll talk about in a minute,) I’m totally glad I went and proud to have taken part in this historic event.

Happy Holidays!!

Hooray for break, no homework, homemade COOKIES and amazing movies on TV!

As you kick back and relax, we just wanna say: have a wonderful holiday! Below is a photo of our entire crew hanging out in Oakland last week.

Did you know you can find us in a few new places this spring? That's right! Check us out in New York / New Jersey; the D.C.-area; Austin, TX; Atlanta, Georgia and Denver, Colorado!

Happy Holidays.
