FinnishNews & NordicWeek is giving space to Zero Hour, a great youth movement in the US that is fighting hard for Climate Change policies. Here is their most recent communication which should inspire readers in the Nordics and elsewhere into action too.
By Arielle Martinez Cohen, Zero Hour Partnerships Director
We recently had a soft launch of our #GetToTheRoots campaign on social media. For this campaign, we are training hundreds of young ambassadors to talk about climate justice in their communities. To get involved, go to http://thisiszerohour.org/our-actions/.
Now, on Earth Day, April 22nd, we will get ready to officially launch the #GetToTheRoots campaign! We will also be announcing a new action happening this summer in Miami. The event will be at Busboys and Poets, 450 K St NW Washington, DC 20001 from 6pm EST to 8pm EST, and will be live streamed across Zero Hour’s social media platforms. Stay tuned for more information.
In the meantime, many of our partners also have some amazing actions on the rise.
