We need to talk...
Do you recycle? Do you avoid littering?
If you’re reading this, chances are you do. We applaud your efforts but…we need to talk.
Each person “doing their part” for the environment will not be enough to address the challenges we face.
Let’s face it, we are all more comfortable deciding to recycle or ride our bike than we are getting involved in local or national policy-making. It is just easier to make choices that don’t require that we work with others. But being on our best environmental behavior is not enough to fix the problems we face.
The best long-term fix is to have a generation of citizens who carry their environmental beliefs with them into the halls of government. How do we change this dynamic?
We prepare young people to enter the messy world of civic change: Environmental Action Civics.
