NH Students Leading the March to a Sustainable Future

July 23, 2007

When it comes to global warming, a group of energetic young people say it's time for New Hampshire to walk the talk. Members of the Sierra Student Coalition plan a five-day march from Nashua to Concord next week to call for real solutions to the causes of climate change, including a two percent reduction per year in carbon dioxide emissions. But instead of marching for their own future, 20-year-old organizer Katherine McEachern says the young people are already thinking of their children's future.

"If we create the America that we want to see created through building cleaner energy technologies to create a more stable economy, that's the future that we want to be able to leave our children."

McEachern believes the challenge of climate change doesn't stop at economic or generational boundaries.

"This is an issue that people of all ages and all backgrounds care about, so I think that we all have a stake in this."

The Sierra Student Coalition is the national students' chapter of the Sierra Club. In addition to the New Hampshire event, a similar march is also winding from Ames to Des Moines, Iowa next week.
