Ardea Youth Climate Coalition Presents Youth PowerPalooza: Fueling Clean Energy!
Join us and meet some amazing People, eat Pizza, and build youth Power – we will have action opportunities to protect our people and planet.
Date: Thursday, November 2nd, 2023 Time: 3:00-6:00 pm Location: The ‘flagpoles” on WMU Main Campus (plaza at the corners of Wood Hall, the Lee Honors College, Sangren Hall, and the new Student Center)
The Ardea Youth Climate Coalition is proud to present Youth PowerPalooza: Fueling Clean Energy, a youth-centered clean energy event aimed at empowering Kalamazoo’s young population to directly engage with our democracy and advocate for Michigan’s Clean Energy Future Plan.
Free pizza and light refreshments will be provided, and a live acoustic band will perform during a portion of the event.
The event will feature tables from many local climate organizations with information on current clean energy legislation and developments, focusing on work from local youth-led groups. We will have platforms for direct civic engagement, allowing attendees to voice their support for 100% Clean Energy by speaking directly to state legislators via phone calls and/or letters, in addition to speeches from the youth organizers, prominent community members, and an open mic for participants to voice their concerns about the climate crisis and clean energy. City, County, and State legislators have been invited to attend, providing a unique opportunity for youth voices to directly reach those in positions of power.
