Will Young People Save the Earth?

What can we learn from the next generation of environmental activists? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation with winners of this year's David Brower Youth Awards, which honors young people for their achievements in the fields of environmental and social justice advocacy. Do you know a young person who's inspired you to do more to protect the environment?

Join us live at 11 or email us at Is there a heightened environmental consciousness in the next generation? It's Your Call, with Sandip Roy and you.
