Challenge is a project of more than 30 leading youth
organizations throughout the U.S. and Canada. The
Challenge leverages the power of young people to
organize on college campuses and high schools across
Canada and the U.S. to win 100% Clean Energy policies
at their schools. The Challenge is growing a
generation-wide movement to stop global warming, by
reducing the pollution from our high schools and
colleges down to zero, and leading our society to a
clean energy future.
The purpose of the conference is to teach students about
the urgency of global warming, and provide them with
the tools necessary to bring the Challenge to their
campuses, and run successful energy campaigns.
STOP GLOBAL WARMING NOW! FIGHT THE ENERGY CRISIS NOW! YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!
