Marching for Our Future

My name is Cole Norgaarden, I’m a senior at Blake School and I serve as a co-chair of Youth Environmental Activists of Minnesota. The reason I’m here today, and the reason why all of you are here today, is because we are currently experiencing a truly pivotal time for the climate movement, both as a state and a nation.

Over 200 Minnesotans attended the Minnesota Environmental Congress on March 15th in Bloomington, MN, including high school and college youth from across the state. The one day conference provided an opportunity for representatives from environmental organizations, chambers of commerce, scientists, representatives from all levels of government, tribal leaders, as well as leaders from the business, student, and faith communities to create recommendations for the MN Environmental Quality Board (EQB) related to air, water, climate, energy, and land – and to shape a vision for the future that addresses Minnesota’s environment and energy challenges and opportunities.
