Amazing youth coming to a city near you!

From our friends over at the Brower Youth Awards

The Brower Youth Awards are an incredible opportunity to be ignited, inspired and energized to be an agent of change!

The Awards honor six exceptional youth eco-activists all over North America. This year, join us as we celebrate the accomplishments of youth from Puerto Rico to Alaska (including Ana Elisa Perez Quintero, pictured above)...

Trees Bottle NYC Traffic

A violent 70-80 mile per hour tornado like storm uprooted trees, knocked down power lines, and dominated news headlines Thursday night in New York City and I live to tell about it!

What's hot and cool & green all over?

Urban Gardening in NYC, that's what! This summer it was obvious: urban gardening is hot right now, and everyone from Martha Stewart to high school students in the Bronx know that there's a lot of it happening right now in NYC!

I did a little digging (insert pun) and found that urban gardens are more than just a passing fad here in NYC - and students have some interesting reasons for planting them. Check out my silent film investigation of the who, what and where of urban gardens in NYC:

A solarizing experience!

By Carol Bowe, student from Boston Latin School YouthCAN

Last Tuesday on September 7that the old South Church in Boston, 350.org held an event about putting solar on the white house.

Bill McKibben and some students from Unity College in Maine traveled there with a solar panel from their rooftop (that was actually on the White House back in the day!) that they wanted the President to put back on the White House.

What would you do with a second summer vacation?

Here at ACE, we were curious about the crazy adventures people were up to over the summer, and even more curious about which adventures were environmentally and climate friendly. So, we recently launched a text message contest to find out!

Read on to hear the adventures of our 3 winners along with several staff favorites. If you didn't get a chance to text in, feel free to share your best green summer adventure in the comments section and you can sign up for future texts and contests by texting "DOT" to 30644.

Let's Get Solar On The White House

I'll call it a Phoenix... out of the ashes of a dead climate bill in the US Senate, rises an opportunity for our President to be a leader and reincarnate an American industry that could both create jobs and help curb climate change.

What am I talking about? Solar on the White House, of course...

LA Lakers Point Guard shares his DOT

Ever see an ACE Educator dunk with an NBA Champ? Me neither... until now! LA Lead Educator Ethan Burke stopped by former LA Laker Jordan Farmar's Summer Camp - "Hoop Farm" - to give a presentation and shoots some hoops with the champ.

Get trained in Oakland on Sept. 18th!

I hope you’re all geared up for another excellent semester with ACE! To kick off the semester in NorCal, we’re hosting a Student Leadership Training in Oakland on September 18th.

The training will go down at the Green Youth Media & Arts Center (map) and it'll bring together high school leaders from all over the Bay Area to build organizing skills, network with other nearby students and get the scoop on all the ways ACE can help you create change this year!
