Title: Union of almost 400 youth organizations for environmental protection in North America
Due to the problem of global warming, Energy Action has built up a coalition of 21 major student environmental and social justice organizations in the U.S. and Canada to unify and sustain the growing youth climate movement. By developing partnerships with youth labor, peace and justice, farm and faith organizations, they are able to reach a broader segment of the population. The aim of this venture is to stop unsustainable corporate practices that contribute to global warming. Another intention is to help universities provide a model for ecological communities and responsible institutions. Since their establishment in June 2004, Energy Action has become a centerpiece of the youth climate movement.
