Youth Demand Climate Action in Champaign – May 8

Earlier this year, local high school  presented to the Urbana City Council and were successful in passing a resolution committing Urbana to work toward achieving net zero emissions by 2040 and 100 percent renewable electricity by 2025. Now, it’s time to bring this movement to Champaign. 
Students from local high schools will present a Climate Report Card to Champaign City Council that grades where the city is at in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in comparison to where scientists say we need to be. They are asking Champaign to pass a resolution that commits the city to the action needed to prevent the worst repercussions of climate change.

The event takes place on Tuesday, May 8, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm, at the Champaign City Building 102 N Neil St, Champaign, IL. Join us in showing the community that we are united and strong in this effort. Wear blue to show you’re with us.
