Bowdoin Climate Action is an official hub of the Sunrise Movement. We believe that climate change is one of the defining problems of our generation, the effects of which are already being felt, and often disproportionately in communities that contribute the least to this change. We organize for a Green New Deal on the state and federal level. Through this we promote a just transition to renewable energy in order to combat climate change on the timeline that science demands, while at the same time addressing the economic and social inequalities of our time, related to class divides, racism, and the crippling hold of corporate money on our political system. The Green New Deal is currently the only solution put forth in our government that provides full solutions to these crises and we work to grow grassroots youth-lead efforts to ensure that it becomes a reality.
