Lupine Experiential School, with Head of School Jackie Taylor, have made it possible for 31 students from Washington and Oregon to participate in a Youth Acting for our Earth (YAE) training on the climate crisis. YAE trainings are organized by Climate Change Recovery and accompanied by a parents’ workshop. YAE leaders range in age from 8 to 32 and work to teach others, and to advocate for safer policies to protect our future from global warming. Lupine students had the opportunity to offer a graduation presentation to special guests Vancouver Port Commissioner Eric LaBrant and Callie Greene of the Climate Action Corps at the end of the program.
