Climate Change from the Affected Generation

My Interview with Charlie and Jeremy 21 April 2016

     My name is Atticus Tong and I’m 10 years old. I learn Chinese at The International School. I could have learned Spanish or Japanese but I choose Chinese because my mom is Chinese. In 5th grade you go on something called Capstone. Capstone is a trip to a country where the language you are studying is spoken. A few weeks ago I came back from China. In China we went to Shanghai, Suzhou, Xi’an and Beijing. In Suzhou I stayed with a family for a week and went to school with their son. My favorite thing was the terracotta warriors because I’ve never seen so many statues before and that they represented a big part of Chinese history. The thing I didn't like about China was the pollution, we had to wear masks many times because of the smog.

Climate Toothpaste ~Heidi Cody 25 March 2016

     Hi! My name is Heidi Cody and I am a visual artist and climate activist. Charlie and Jeremy asked me to blog about my newest project, and I’m excited to share it with you. Climate Toothpaste is a conversation-starter and fundraising tool for climate advocacy groups. 

Climate ToothpasteIt connects people who care but are not active on climate change, to climate groups that need help. It’s not toothpaste (sorry!) It’s an “art object.” It looks familiar, right? That’s because it’s designed to grab attention. Upon close inspection the box is covered with information about climate change. Inside is a brochure that describes climate groups, and how to connect with them.
