California Students Speak Out on School Conditions & Energy Efficiency - Part 2

Last week we posted a video made by Julie Rivas, a California student concerned by the poor conditions and inefficient uses of energy in her school. Thanks to our friends at the Alliance for Climate Education we have heard from even more students from schools across the state, and this week we're sharing their stories.

School buildings matter. We know this. It's why we're still talking about Prop 39 and the Emergency Repair Program: Because schools are a great place to start building our clean energy future. Because we've seen the effects of poor ventilation that so many of these students describe. Because we know that not all schools are created equal, and that every child deserves an equal opportunity to succeed. Schools matter because kids matter, each and every one.


The Alliance for Climate Education works across the U.S. to educate and inspire young people to break through the challenge of climate change.
