White House Youth Clean Energy Economy Forum

Check out this story by Campus Progress Advocacy Associate Tommaso Boggia, who on Dec 2 attended the White House’s Youth Clean Energy Economy Forum, a landmark conference with the president’s administration on what they are doing to address climate change.

Tommaso quoted me in the story:

“A Clean Energy Economy Forum hosted by the White House would have been unthinkable four years ago, so it was remarkable to watch the administration itself address youth on climate change yesterday. Young people have historically been absent from the political process, so I am honored to be alive during such an important time. It was amazing to watch Washington higher-ups yielding not to our wishes, but to our ‘demands.’ I am currently working in Florida with students and youth leaders to pass a renewable energy investment fund at the University of Florida. We are excited to build off the momentum created by this historic forum, and we are thrilled to be part of the movement for sustainability on our campuses, in our communities, and in the world.”

Chris Cano, Outreach Coordinator for Gators for a Sustainable Campus at the University of Florida, hosted a live screening of the forum from his campus.
