Good Morning!

As you know, we will not meet tonight or next week. However, tomorrow (2/9) 6pm, we will be painting the new Bike Co-Op in the Harstad basement, eating free pizza, and planning Earth Week! Let me know if you will be attending so we can get a rough head count.

Here are some other reminders:

* Our next meeting is Monday, February 22, 2010 in Morken 125 at 7pm. Students from Concordia University will be here to give a presentation on their sustainability efforts and then we’ll have an informal discussion about what we do also. I encourage you to bring friends! They are on a Justice Journeys alternative spring break and wanted to see what the Northwest was up to. This year, their focus is on environmental justice.

* 2/20/09: Volunteer Planting at Clover Creek in Pierce County

* 3/1/09: GREAN mtg w/ WSU Public Relations/Communication Coordinator who will share info about their various environmentally-focused grad school opportunities.

If you are interested in furthering your environmental action training I suggest you check out West Coast SPROG. Here is the information:

“The long awaited application to be a trainer at one of the SSC’s incredible summer leadership and grassroots organizing training programs is finally here! We are looking for passionate, experienced youth organizers to join a team of trainers who will plan and implement a week-long training curriculum for high school and college-aged youth who are interested in climate and justice advocacy and organizing. This is perhaps the greatest contribution you can make to the future of the youth climate movement.

At this point we know we will be running at least 5 programs, possibly more. If you’d like to be considered for a position as a trainer, please READ the job description, then complete the application by Friday, Feb. 12th.

If you have participated in a Sprog before, you know how powerful the experience can be. This is your chance to provide that experience for a whole new group of youth while at the same time taking the development of your own organizing skills to the next level.
