About this title


If you want to make a significant and sustainable impact on the health of our planet, this powerful and practical guide can help. Author and activist Sharon J. Smith shares proven strategies and lessons learned from the winners of Earth Island Institute's Brower Youth Awards--America's top honor for young green leaders. Here are all the tools you need--from planning a campaign and recruiting supporters to raising money and attracting media attention--to turn your ideas into actions and make changes that matter. 

Throughout this book Sharon spotlights stories from youth like Jessie-Ruth Corkins, who saved her school $90,000 by greening its heating system for a science project, and Billy Parish, whose small student group became one of the most influential coalitions in America addressing climate change.  These eco-heroes have made headlines for passing legislation, founding nonprofits, and raising millions of dollars for sustainability--all before their twenty-third birthdays.
All author proceeds from the sale of this book go to Earth Island Institute's Brower Youth Awards to support the next generation of young activists.
