Time to Rise Up: How the Millenial Generation is Winning a Just and Sustainable Future
The SNC Green Council introduces outspoken advocate and internationally-recognized former elected official Dominic Frongillo. Frongillo will share his perspective as the youngest-ever councilmember in Caroline, NY, and delegate to UN climate talks on how young people around the world are leading successful impact enterprises, grassroots movements, and innovations for sustainability and political change. He will share inspiring stories from the front lines of the fight against climate change and for a sustainable future, from the United Nations climate negotiations in South Africa to delivering energy-saving lightbulbs to over 15,000 homes in his hometown to winning a ban on fracking in New York. Participants will learn how to get off the ground directly after college to make a powerful impact for what truly matters.
