Share your student testimonial with Congress!
Before the upcoming Lobby Day, we invite you to share your testimonial with Congress. Share a photo of yourself, and a sentence or two on why you support the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act through citizensclimatehighered.org/testimonials. The testimonial slides will be shared with Members of Congress at November Lobby Day. You must be under 30 to participate. Submissions are due by November 5. Students who submit a testimonial will be entered into a drawing for a prize of CCL merchandise of their choice from our store! ($35 max).
Apply to Be a Campus Leader
The purpose of the Campus Leader Program is to empower students to become effective climate advocates and organizers in their communities. With support from CCL staff and higher ed allies, Campus Leaders learn climate advocacy skills, educate others about climate solutions, lead a group, and build political will for carbon pricing. Students who undergo the 15-week training program can apply to receive 1 credit from their academic institution. Students in the second semester of the program start a climate campaign or group at their school. Applications are now accepted on a rolling basis. Please visit our Campus Leaders Page to apply.
