Blog : Climate Reality Project "Know Tomorrow" Event at UNH

By Anne | Sep 23, 2015 | in
 
The Climate Reality Project is a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to shifting awareness of climate change into urgent action in order to accelerate the global shift to clean energy and a healthier planet. The organization’s ultimate goal is to attain net zero carbon emissions worldwide through culturally shifting from fossil fuel use to chiefly clean renewables. A brainchild of Nobel Laureate, former U.S. VP, and environmental advocate behind the Academy Award winning film “An Inconvenient Truth”, Al Gore, this organization seeks to create both awareness and a call to action.
 
A direct path to achieving this ambitious goal of net zero emissions is being formed in the light of the United Nation’s Framework Convention on Climate Change’s 21st Conference of the Parties meeting in Paris (COP21) this December. Climate Reality Project is actively trying to create awareness for this event, uniting and mobilizing citizens, corporations and organizations to demand a strong international agreement that will dramatically cut emissions. 
 
Specifically, their “Road to Paris” campaign is aiming to mobilize thousands of students across the US to demand a strong global agreement from President Obama and other world leaders at COP21. On October 2nd from 12 to 3 p.m. Climate Reality Project will hold a huge visibility event on the University of New Hampshire campus aptly entitled, “Know Tomorrow”. The event will gather 500+ UNH students to show their support for a strong commitment at COP21. This vibrant event will include live music, free food, free gear, fun activities and many participating student organizations.
 
The event will feature musical performances by student entertainers, including Dogs Who Know They Are Dogs, Nick Hames, Not Too Sharp, and campus Greek Life organizations. Student will get to participate in fun activities, like an interactive Road to Paris timeline of events leading up to the Paris climate talks, a Snapchat competition with our large inflatable globe, and a giant chalkboard that they can add their personal story about why they care about climate change. Student will enjoy lots of free food and other products from our event sponsors, including Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, Kind bars, Chipotle products, Domino’s pizza, and the Works bagels.
