Are you a Buffalo or WNY resident that wants to contribute to making our city and region a greener place? Then join us on May 4th for a Community Webinar for a Climate Emergency! Learn about the WNY Youth Climate Council and our campaign to Declare a Climate Emergency, what it means, how we can achieve it, and how you can contribute to the climate resolution! Join us to Declare a Climate Emergency!
For those of you who are new to our campaign, over the past few months the WNY Youth Climate Council has been working to get Buffalo and Erie County to Declare a Climate Emergency and pass a Climate Resolution. The Declaration is a nonbonding act which acknowledges climate change as a threat and promises to mobilize to combat it, and the Resolution is the more binding follow up which outlines a commitment for municipalities to take action.
With the help of over 2000 individuals and over 20 local supporting organization, we’re moving close and closer to actually declaring a climate emergency in WNY! Sign our petition here and show your support for our campaign and email us directly to add your organizations to our growing list of supporters!
Although our March 2020 Buffalo Climate Strike was cancelled due to the health emergency, the YCC has been digitally striking every Friday to continue to raise awareness. Check out our social media to participate! Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram
