Getting the Next Generation Involved

Earth Charter Indiana is looking for Fort Wayne community members, especially youths ages 8-18, who are interested in working with us later this year on youth-led local initiatives for a healthier climate and environment. Their goal is to achieve city-wide action to cut fossil fuel emissions, reduce waste, and preserve natural resources by capturing the voices of concerned youths and supporting the missions of existing environmental organizations. The sustainability initiatives they pursue will be inspired by the work of youth in Oregon and the Indianapolis area, who have appealed to their city councils and governments about making sustainability a part of the city code, but they will also be uniquely designed for the needs of the Fort Wayne community and the interests of the youth who lead those efforts. The local contact for that effort is Tessa Horan, intern for Earth Charter Indiana. For more information, please reach out to her at horant18@mail.wlu.edu. Thanks.
