2013-2014 Launch of the WSF Midwest Intergenerational Mentorship Program
Aaaaaand, they’re off! Forty-two environmental leaders, matched in six Midwest states are embarking on the second run of an innovative mentorship program, hosted by the Will Steger Foundation, in partnership with the RE-AMP Network, an active network of over 160 nonprofits and foundations across eight Midwestern states working in concert to reduce global warming pollution economy-wide 80% by 2050.
The Will Steger Foundation is honored to be a recipient of 2013 Hennepin County Green Partners Environmental Education Program funding to expand and deepen our Youth Environmental Activists of Minnesota (YEA! MN) program. Hennepin County provides funding and support to organizations to implement projects that empower residents to reduce waste, increase recycling, reduce toxicity, conserve energy and protect water quality.
Right around the corner, almost tangible at this point, is an opportunity to amplify the work of young pioneers wrestling with climate issues and to empower thousands more leaders to incubate a stronger, healthier, more equitable future. For our country and the planet, it really can’t come soon enough.
The fifth Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report is due out on September 27th and is expected to reaffirm with growing confidence that humans are driving global warming and climate change.
This Earth Day, I joined over seven hundred people in the Minnesota state capitol building rotunda to voice support for renewable energy legislation.
