As greenhouse gas emissions rise and the planet’s temperature increases we see increased impact on the Earth’s climate.  While the effects are clear now the young people of today will be faced with more severe climate change in their lives.  That’s why many young adults are looking to make a difference now.

Co-sponsored by Kentucky Interfaith Power & Light and the Earth & Spirit Center, OurEarthNow is a youth-led group that aims to promote awareness among society, particularly youth, and energize a movement to enact both social and environmental change through collective empowerment and action. 

OurEarthNow is currently engaged in training the next generation of environmental activists through their Louisville Environmental Activist Training program.  This program is designed to teach people interested in environmental activism how to go from idea to action when it comes to creating a healthy environmental future.

OurEarthNow is always looking for members to get engaged in social and environmental justice.  Follow OEN on Instagram to find out when meeting or events are.  You can also email ourearthnow@gmail.com  or text (502) 276-5475.

You can also stay current on how OEN is engaging communities by checking out their Facebook page or following their Twitter and Tumblr streams.
