Last month, students at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville had a die in flash mob as part of the 100 actions to demand 100% clean energy. After the die in flashmob, we marched to the Chancellor's office to discuss shutting down the coal plant! We were able to set up a meeting with the Vice Chancellor, and last Tuesday, 6 students including myself met with the Vice Chancellor, Sustainability Manager, and the Associate Vice Chancellor of Facilities Services.
Just a little over a week ago, over 450 young people from across the south made their way to Asheville, NC for the 7th Southeast Student Renewable Energy Conference (SSREC). At SSREC, they attended workshops, heard inspiring keynote speakers, and connected with their state networks.
