Question of the Month: “What actions have you taken to combat climate change?”

In the Spotlight

World leaders met in New York City late September to discuss global climate change and to build momentum for the 2015 UN Climate Summit in Paris, where there are hopes of creating a binding international agreement. In response to the gathering, leaders and activists took their own steps to voice their concerns about climate change:

*On September 21st, we saw the largest climate march in history.

*Louie Schwartzberg’s Climate Summit film delivers a powerful and inspiring message. See the short film, What’s Possible, here.

“They will either remember us as the generation that destroyed its home, or the one that finally came to respect it. We have every reason in the world to ACT.”
