Youth Take Environmental Action

EUGENE, Ore. — It’s all things Eugene this weekend at the Eugene Celebration, and what better way to represent the city than to have a sustainability section.

Several vendors covered all things green and recycling. One group, The Trust Campaign, says it works with students and encourages them to take environmental action through ways like making documentaries.

“Kids help write the films and they’re featured in the films. The films are really about young people across the country who are being impacted by climate change,” said Julia Olson, Our Children’s Trust Director.

Olson says as part of the global trust campaign, American youth have filed legal actions in all 50 states against the federal government in the last two years.
