Zoe and Wren left school early on Friday to get to Olympia in time to speak at the climate hearing hosted by Governor Inslee and the Climate Workgroup (CLEW). The ambassadors’ preparation really paid off when they got their turn to address the room. They shared the scientific plan to keep global warming closer to 1-degree C this century, and then announced Washington’s Billion Tree Campaign by 2020, a big surprise announcement. You can see their testimony online on TVW. We met so many friendly people who welcomed the ambassadors and wanted to hear more about Plant-For-The-Planet and our inspiring ambassadors for climate justice. What an exciting night!

  1. WOW. 1 Billion Trees in Washington State by 2020 and 1 degF limit to warming Mother Earth by 2100: Now there’s a couple of goals we all can adopt! Thanks for pointing us in this direction Zoe. Lets go Do This Thing! Rusty West
