Alliance for Climate Education Club Assembles Student Body for Critical Insights About the Climate

On Monday, February 13, 2017 an assembly was held at the Agajanian Auditorium for the school Alliance for Climate Education Club. Alliance for Climate Education, or ACE, is the national leader in high school climate science education. ACE is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides free multimedia assemblies on climate science and solutions to high schools. ACE’s mission is to educate young people on the science of climate change and empower them to take action. By empowering youth to take action with a frame of justice and optimism, we are shifting the national discourse on climate in ways that are proven to affect public opinion and policy. We plan on making a small contribution to make our world a less dangerous place by improving our school first. We plan on investing in recycling bins to put all around the school. At the assembly the club brought to our attention the dangers of the California drought and how we can make an impact on climate change by just Doing One Thing (D.O.T). Our presenter Wen Lee, environmental educator was an outdoor school naturalist and a high school science teacher. Wen worked at the Alliance to Save Energy where she managed youth teams leading energy efficiency projects on their campuses. She also served as the Director of Online Media & Engagement at the Center for a New American Dream, leading national digital communications to promote conscious consumerism and simpler living. Wen taught us how to make our school a better place and things to do at home to better the climate. To improve the planet we can recycle, eat better, drive less, carpool, and take shorter showers. By doing these little things everyday we can better our climate and home and school.
