You Can Help "Focus the Nation" on Global Warming Solutions

Focus the Nation is an educational initiative seeking to advance discussions on global warming solutions for America. The initiative consists of four components:

2% Solution - a free interactive webcast being shown at thousands of schools and faith and civic organizations around the country on Wednesday, January 30 at 8pm EST and available on demand afterwards. The webcast will feature Stanford University climate scientist, Stephen Schneider, sustainability expert Hunter Lovins and green jobs pioneer Van Jones and youth climate leaders, for a discussion of global warming solutions.

National Teach-In - on Thursday, January 31, educators are encouraged to engage in a national teach-in engaging millions of students and citizens with political leaders and decision makers about Global Warming Solutions.

Green Democracy - urges every Focus the Nation team to end their event the same way, in a round-table dialogue with elected leaders answering questions by a panel of students.

Choose Your Future - from the list of policies advanced on the Focus the Nation website, during the week of January 31st, 2008, students and citizens across the country will vote on five as priorities for action. This campus and citizen endorsed agenda will be held up to political leaders in Washington DC, and state capitals across the nation.
