Youth CAN! From Idea to Reality

Back in June, the YEA!MN steering committee and I took our year-end retreat to the Lake Country Land School in Wisconsin.  We came up with lots of big plans for our projects during the 2014-2015 school year, one of which was the Youth Climate Action Now! (Youth CAN!) conference.  At the time, it was hard to picture what the event would look like and how we would go about making it happen.  But many hours of hard work by the planning committee payed off, culminating in an empowering conference on November 8th that exceeded all of our expectations.

Youth CAN! and Youth Did!

I remember a hot, sticky day in mid-July in Washington DC sitting on my friend’s roof on a conference call with all my friends and committee members back in Minnesota, straining to hear what they were all saying. I couldn’t really hear what was happening but I could hear passion through the phone lines, people were getting ideas, and getting excited. We were brainstorming ideas for an event that would later develop into Youth CAN! (Youth Climate Action Now). This event took place November 8th at El Colegio High School. We had students from all over the Twin Cities metro-area, Wisconsin, and even Northfield and Worthington.

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.
