MN Student Action Training to shake of the summer dust and get students geared up as critical leaders in their school communities.

History will be made next week in New York City with the People's Climate March on September 21st, which is building up to be the largest climate demonstration ever. The march coincides with the 69th session of the U.N. General Assembly. These discussions will set the agenda for the COP 21 international climate discussions in Paris in 2016. We are proud to be sending a delegation of ten high school youth with our Emerging Leaders staff to participate in the march and show world leaders that people want action on climate now.
