I am a 17 year old high school student and I am worried about the future of this city and the world the youth will inherit. New York City is a beautiful pot of diverse culture, food, education, art, and culture. Whether it is art, economic, fashion, or education, New York City is an inspirational center of this world. As a hub of the world's intersection, New York has the responsibility to change the way it sees climate change. New York City needs to divest from fossil fuels and embrace green and sustainable technology that already exist today. In this upcoming mayoral election, I want New York City to vote for a leader that will help mandate that NYC's schools will educate on climate change and sustainability. I want New York City to show the world that educating our youth on climate change is important because they will shape the policies and social conditions that their children will inherit. 

 

 

GK Superstar Writes to the Next Mayor for Climate Change Education! 

 

Last Saturday some of the students who attended the Powershift conference got together to talk about how Powershift impacted them and how they could continued to shift power here in NYC. We could not miss this opportunity to have the students take a mini action to honor the elections happening on November 5th, 2013. The students worked on a PSA, which is being edited and I will share once its ready, to tell the next mayor that NYC teens want a climate champion for mayor. In addition, HRAP GK superstar Makayla wrote a letter to the next mayor expressing the city's need for a mayor who will bring climate education to NYC public schools.

 

Here's the letter:
