Youth for Environmental Stewardship speaking at Buncombe County Commission November 7

November 10th, 2017

Wenoca Sierra Club & Greenworks is sponsoring a group called Youth for environmental stewardship (YES) which has all nine Buncombe County high schools and two universities involved.

Last night, Tuesday, November 7 , 10 of our students, representing six high schools, the University of North Carolina Asheville, and Warren Wilson spoke to Buncombe County commission for roughly 3 minutes each, passionately and with researched numbers, asking the commissioners to reconsider their October 10th 5-2 no vote against the 100% renewable energy resolution proposed for over the next 10 years.
We plan to remain involved.
