Today on Your Call: What can we learn from next generation of young environmental activists?

Oct 22, 2012

On today’s Your Call, we'll have a conversation with three winners of this year's David Brower Youth Awards, which honors young people for their achievements in the fields of environmental and social justice advocacy. Do you know a young person who's inspired you to do more to protect the environment?  Join us live at 11 or email us at What environmental issues concern young people today? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
