cutcarbonpollution

The largest source of air pollution is from coal-fired power plants, which emit hazardous air pollutants, in addition to overloading our atmosphere with carbon pollution, which is driving climate change and affects our health, environment and economy.

Hi, my name is Lucy West and I'm a senior at St. Paul Central High School in Minnesota. I am also a co-president of my school's environmental club, Roots & Shoots. I went to the People's Climate March with a group of high schoolers from around the Twin Cities as part of the YEA! MN youth delegation – a program of the Will Steger Foundation. The People's Climate March was a huge gathering of people in New York City of 400,000 people calling for immediate climate action.

Just in case you hadn’t heard! Over 400,000 people joined the People’s Climate March, including 50,000 students and young people! The student contingent took over 10 city blocks: http://on.fb.me/1ym7DEK 

The Will Steger Foundation was proud to send 10 high school students through our YEA! MN program on a 22 hours bus ride, joining over 400 other Minnesotans to be part of history in NYC.

The new school year is just under way and YEA! MN is already hard at work.  We kicked off the fall season with the YEA! MN Student Action Training to shake of the summer dust and get students geared up as critical leaders in their school communities.  Eleven students from 7 different Twin Cities high schools spent their last Saturday afternoon of the summer learning new tools to empower their success as youth organizers in their school environmental clubs.
