Story2 Supports Young Activists and the Global Climate Strike

One of the most wonderful parts of being in the Story2 community is hearing students tell their stories, moments of strength and vulnerability, moments of passion and change. Stories of young people like Greta Thunberg getting out into the world and demanding change might seem like an exception, but every year, again and again, we work with students who are acting on their commitments to creating a better world.
We applaud the work Greta is doing and at the same time recall so many stories of character in her generation including Bana Alabed, Sophie Cruz, David Hogg, Jazz Jennings, and Xiuhtezcatl Roske-Martinez.
On September 21, many Story2 students will be taking part in Climate Strike activities around the world. Our staff, coaches, and essay advisers will be right there with them! Climate and the environment will undoubtedly have an enormous impact on the lives of students as they move through college, enter the workplace, and live their lives. We encourage everyone who is part of the Story2 community to go out and be heard. Next week we will share some of our own stories from the strike, so stay tuned!
