SIGN THE FLORIDA CLIMATE PLEDGE
We, the youth, can be a force of nature to call our business community and elected officials to take concrete action to stop climate change. These are uncertain times as the world navigates the COVID-19 health crisis and we take the measures needed to keep our communities healthy and safe. Following the science with a united effort will flatten the curve to cope with this pandemic. This is the same action necessary to mitigate the climate crisis.
These signatures will be delivered to Governor DeSantis and our State and Federal Senators. Share the pledge on social media.
COVID-19 has taught us that when humanity unites, we can prevail. Unite behind the science. And stay safe. Because there is no Planet B. We all just have to do something. –Will Charouhis, Founder of We Are Forces of Nature
JOIN OUR PLASTIC-FREE CAMPAIGN
Join me and the 2020 National Youth Leadership Council in our goals to eliminate single-use plastics, and pick up 1 million pieces of plastic trash to clean up our home.
Roots & Shoots is the youth program of the Jane Goodall Institute, created to empower young people to create positive change in their communities. This year, Forces of Nature has taken on a dual goal: get your school, your community, and your city to ban single-use plastics. And get outdoors when it's safe to pick up plastic trash. Together, we aim to eliminate 1 million pieces of plastic from our planet and pick up a million more, before years' end. But with more than 15 million high school students in America, if we each forgo the use of one single-use drink a day, and pick up one piece of plastic trash a day, we can save our planet from over 200 million pieces of plastic a year! So the 1 million mark is a no-brainer.
You can sign up for the challenge.
COVID-19 has focused us on the need to come together. No more dire warning has been given than this-we need to take collective action on the climate to protect our future.
