Wrapping a Ribbon on Copenhagen

21 Dec

Jamie Horter, my friend and co-worker at the Green Project, just finished up two weeks of leadership and action in Copenhagen, Denmark. She is part of the Will Steger Foundation’s “Expedition Copenhagen” team, a dozen youth representing the Midwest (that’s us) at the United Nations Climate Conference that ended Friday. While President Obama calls the Copenhagen Accord a “breakthrough,” most feel it isn’t much more than an agreement to make an agreement later. Lost in the media hoopla about failure in Denmark are the powerful stories and relationships that were sparked and shared.

Thanks to Jamie, I was able to experience a few of them from afar. We skyped several times during the Conference and she shared some cool, and some heartbreaking things. Her team made this video before they departed, with a message of hope. We still can change the future.
