{June 25, 2007}   C-Change and Party For the Planet

I first read about this over at Environment Solution and could not help but think “Lucky buggers”. I want to go to the Party For the Planet! But no, of course I can’t go. I’m too old. And there’s that whole living in America thing stopping me. But that is beside the point.

 If you happen to be one of the lucky chaps living in London you might have already heard about C-Change. It is a new project geared towards kids that teaches them about climate change, global warming, conservation, and a host of other topics that many of the adults are only beginning to get. Imagine how well informed these children will be. These are the kids that will be running things as adults. It makes me feel a little more secure in the future knowing that.

Funded by the government’s Climate Challenge Fund, C-Change is a project which aims to engage young people who have some knowledge and concern about climate change in raising the awareness of their peers. The Woodcraft Folk’s steering committee of twenty young people are planning to run a wide range of events and activities during the coming year.

They are also hosting a Party For the Planet on July 7th in Clapham Common, London. Check out all the fun things that will be going on. Make your own cosmetics, street art, re-invent clothing, storytellers, drama, a mini-child’s area featuring circus skills, and even a debate area if you are so inclined. Plus lots more. There will even be a free concert performed by the top five bands from their Battle of the Bands.

C-Change has a lot more going on too. Like a film festival, club nights, and a 24-hour internet radio show called c-cast. They also offer a training course for any young people interested in running their own local group. C-Change sounds awesome, and I can only hope something as cool as this project finds it’s way over to the states. But for those in London, enjoy the show! And bring me back a souvineer, please.
