In recent headlines: “Climate change is real, humans are mostly to blame, time is short, UN panel says…” The fourth and final volume of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) giant climate assessment offered no surprises since it combined the findings of three reports released in the past 13 months.
Mark your calendars for our new series- Dine for Climate- where we invite you to enjoy a sustainable dinner at a local restaurant, and a portion of the proceeds go to the Will Steger Foundation. When it comes to our food system, climate change solutions are close at hand!
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.
