WSF is proud to send a delegation of high school youth from our YEA! MN program to the People's Climate March in New York City, September 21.
When two independent scientific studies confirmed the West Antarctic ice sheet has begun an irreversible melt, triggering sea level rise of potentially more than 10 feet over the coming centuries, Will Steger knew this was another major sign of climate change and a critical tipping point.
Monday June 2nd, 7-9 pm.
Today Senator John Marty recognized Will Steger and his incredible leadership and accomplishments for raising awareness of the urgency of climate change and the opportunity for solutions.
Bryn has been a driving force in YEA! MN since he joined the program two years ago as a sophomore at Central High School in St Paul. His campus earth club, Roots & Shoots, had a long legacy of success, including institutionalizing school-wide recycling and composting. But when the seniors graduated, Bryn found himself pretty much alone to carry the torch. Still, he refused to give up, and has worked tirelessly over the last two years to rebuild the Roots & Shoots team and work to make Central a leader in sustainability.
When Shira Breen joined YEA! MN as a sophomore at Minneapolis South High School, we knew we had met someone special. She was already highly engaged in her school and home community, working with her peers to launch a food shelf at South High, and starting a community garden in the neighborhood surrounding her school campus.
