Meet Gabriela and Koralis, two youth leaders with the Sierra Student Coalition in Puerto Rico who were part of the Líderes Fellowship Program this summer. They started a campaign called Naranjo Watt to bring solar energy to Puerto Rico at a time when renewable, reliable energy is crucial for the island and recovery from #hurricanemaria is still underway. We will be highlighting more youth leaders from the Líderes Fellowship Program with Sierra Club Puerto Rico over the next few weeks. Here's a sneak peak from their blog post: English: "After Hurricane Maria, the community of Los Naranjos in Vega Baja was without electricity for six months. Taking into consideration the possibility of future hurricanes that threaten our energy system, we proposed to install an oasis of solar energy at the headquarters of the Los Naranjos Synergy project." Español: "Luego del paso del huracán María, la comunidad Los Naranjos en Vega Baja permaneció 6 meses sin energía eléctrica. Tomando en consideración la posibilidad de futuros huracanes que amenazan el sistema energético, proponemos instalar un oasis de energía solar en la sede del proyecto Sinergia Los Naranjos." . . . #climate#climatechange#climatejustice#justice#fossilfree#climateresistance#leadership#leaders#students#studentpower#jointhemovement#studentsspeak#studentsstandup#puertorico#lideres#puertoricoselevanta#renewableenergy#solar#cleanenergy

Today, around half of the world’s population lives in cities. By 2050, this figure will have risen to 75%. Within these high-density areas, it will become increasingly important to ensure that residents can continue to enjoy a good quality of life without depleting the earth’s resources. The solution to this problem comes in the form of “sustainable cities”. These cities are made up of environmentally-friendly, sustainable buildings, along with energy supply systems, traffic systems, etc. Amsterdam, Berlin, Hamburg and Uppsala are already considered sustainable cities. Uppsala municipality has very ambitious climate goals: fossil free by 2030. In 2016, Vattenfall and Uppsala municipality signed an agreement for closer cooperation in new energy technology, climate neutrality and a sustainable energy system in Uppsala. Vattenfall's aim is to half carbon dioxide emissions from our heat operation in Uppsala by 2020, and to be entirely carbon-neutral by 2030 at the latest. These measures go hand in hand with the municipality's ambitious climate goals. #sustainablecities#uppsala#vattenfall
Our planet is breaking temperature records around the globe. The #climate has changed — but a destroyed planet and #hothouseearth doesn’t have to be our destiny. It’s time to #riseforclimate on 8 September. Join us, and let’s build a #fossilfree world. www.350.org/rise 💪✊
A little delayed, but last week the Pacific Climate Warriors, WLG whānau kicked off our #rise for #pacificpawa campaign with our first Public Action in front of the New Zealand Parliament!🌺 • How fitting and powerful it was that the Victoria University of Wellingtons Tokelauan Student Association, Te Namo, led the call for true Climate Leadership in Wellington alongside the Pacific Climate Warriors, especially as Tokelau is the first country in the world to become 100% powered by renewable energy! 🌺 • We’re calling on all our local and national leaders, family, friends, and community to PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION & RISE WITH US as we call for a fossil free world! See link in bio 🌺 • We have some exciting events planned in the coming weeks! If you want to get involved and support us in ANY way, connect with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here in VT we’re also experiencing this heat, which has led to drought conditions in some parts of the state. But we can take action by #risingforclimate on Sept 8. Actions are taking place all across VT - head to our FB page or website for more details and locations! #repost @350org with @get_repost ・・・ Our planet is breaking temperature records around the globe.
