The Harvard Extension Environmental Club (HEEC) invite you to a special screening of the film "Young Voices for the Planet," produced by filmmaker Lynne Cherry (also author/illustrator of award-winning environmental children’s books including “The Great Kapok Tree”). The YVFP films document youth solutions to the climate crisis -- Changing minds, changing policy, changing the world!
About the filmmaker: Lynne Cherry is the producer/director of the Young Voices for the Planet film series. Author, illustrator, lecturer on climate change messaging and environmental education and author/illustrator of 30 awardwinning children’s books. Lynne received her BA from Tyler School of Art and a Masters in History at Yale University. She has had artist-inresidencies at Princeton University, the Smithsonian Institution and Cornell University and science-writing fellowships from the Marine Biological Lab and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

Event Special appearance: Alice Van Evera and Mari McBride (along with their teammate Lily Georgopoulos) have participated individually and together in local climate actions since 2009. From a global warming experiment for Estabrook’s Science Fair, 2010 Hands Across the Sand, 2014 NYC Climate March, 2014 bottle bill campaign in Massachusetts, to donating birthday money opting for cash over presents, they have been actively involved in pushing for climate solutions. Inspired by Lynne’s Young Voices, the friends of the Save Tomorrow team hope to band together to have an even larger impact on climate, like helping to solarize Lexington, MA.
