The second annual Midwest Climate Action Conference will take place March 2-4, 2007, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The aim of the conference is to train and empower students and young people to tackle global warming issues on their campus and in their communities. If you’re in the Midwest and would like to attend, you can register on-line until February 16. If you’re looking to incorporate action into your plans for the Day of Prayer, this could be a great way to learn about work students are already doing to combat climate change. Visit the conference website for more info.
If you’re not in the Midwest, don’t feel left out – the conference sponsor, the Sierra Student Coalition, runs state and regional events across the country to provide student activists with the resources to tackle environmental issues. Check their calendar for a list of upcoming events near you.
