Climate Change Agents will share concepts

A new generation of change agents will make their debut on Saturday at the Nevada County Farmers Market.

Participants in the Climate Change Agents Camp will perform on stage at 10:15 a.m. and will also share concepts with market-goers at their own booth throughout the morning.

The youth earned scholarships to attend next week’s overnight camp. Through a series of projects and field trips, they will develop their talents as they learn new ways to practice respect for living things and to demonstrate practical ways to apply moderation to protect and preserve life.

Participants will practice shopping, cooking and measuring the carbon miles used to obtain their dinner. They will make solar cookers for a homeless shelter and a rain barrel for a farming collective, to help farmers store rainwater during the drought.

They will exchange ideas with an organic farm in Haiti. They will learn about human impacts on animal habitats on a bird walk with the Audubon Society. They will practice working together for change as they advocate for climate change action through song, dance, map making, math and oral speaking in their final presentation at a farmer’s market.

This project is sponsored by the Education Committee of the Nevada County Climate Change Coalition (NC-CCC), and Full-Circle Learning. Support came from the Forest Issues Group, the Audubon Society, California Solar, Earth Justice Ministries, SPD, Grocery Outlet and individual NC-CCC donors and volunteers.
