A multitude of environmental issues stem from climate change… food and water scarcity, melting glaciers, wildlife species extinction, coastal flooding, fire crises, and more. These instill a sense of fear and hopelessness in today’s youth who worry about the future of our planet. But climate change is the result of human activity, solutions are feasible, and we can change!
The Teen Advisory Group at the Ypsilanti District Library has decided to act.
We are calling youth to come together to spread awareness and inspire EVERYONE to find ways to conserve at, at school, at work… EVERYWHERE!
Join us at an Earth Day Rally, Sunday, April 19, noon-4pm at the downtown Ypsilanti District Library outdoor park plaza.
- noon-2pm: Visit educational tables to learn about the latest science and find out what local activists are doing, make buttons and posters, and write letters to representatives with YpsiWrites volunteers.
- 2-4pm: Listen to inspiring young activists and spoken word poets, and take a turn during open mic.
Use the form below to sign up to participate.
DEADLINE TO APPLY IS MARCH 23.
We hope everyone leaves the event with a better understanding of how we can all be active advocates for our environment. Because at the end of the day… it is all we have.
