Intro from Bobby Hayden, Solutions Stories & Media Manager for Climate Solutions:
What do an executive, a student, a tribal leader, an activist and a veteran have in common? They were all talking climate action back in February at Fortified! – a climate change storytelling event hosted by the Portland State University’s Institute for Sustainable Solutions and in partnership with the City of Portland, Climate Solutions, Ecotrust, Oregon Environmental Council, Renewable Northwest, and the VOIS Alliance.
One of the evenings’ storytellers was Camila Thorndike, an intrepid young climate activist who has mobilized communities in Oregon, Washington and California. Now she’s working on COAL: the Musical. COAL is a scalable, mythical, upbeat musical fable and grassroots engagement campaign for creative local action for carbon pricing to transition our energy paradigm. Camila also founded and directs Oregon Climate, a new statewide organization working to pass a carbon tax-and-dividend in Oregon. Learn more at oregonclimate.org
