The C2C Fellows National Day of Action is an annual day of climate or sustainability mobilization, with coordinated events organized across the country by Fellows and our supporters. Each year, C2C Fellows from across the country work collectively to support youth climate or sustainability campaigns by organizing our National Day of Action.
Day of Action 2013
In April 2013, our first C2C Action involved over 115 campusand community groups nationwide and was centered around a national screening and discussion of the film The Island President. Called A National Conversation on Democracy and Climate, the event linked climate change activism to the fight against political corruption and to 350.org’s “Do the Math” divestment campaign. Fellows from dozens of schools spear-headed the showing, and were joined by broader screenings on campuses and among community groups not directly affiliated with the Fellows Network. The screening was followed by a discussion with film Director Jon Shenk, Former UN Deputy Permanent Representative to the Maldives and Co-Founder of Voice of Women Thilmeeza Hussain, and with Executive Director and Co-Founder of 350.org May Boeve.
Get Involved 2014
C2C Fellows has a strong history of national organizing. In 2014, C2C Fellows National Day of Action will be designed and executed by a current member of the Fellows Network.
Fellows, do you have an idea for Day of Action 2014? A film you want to show, an action you want to organize, a conversation you want to start? Email Workshop Director Jess Scott with your idea: something inexpensive, scalable, and with the potential to generate excitement and conversation nationwide. We’ll hire the Fellow with the best idea to join our team and lead our national action in the spring.
