Each year we take an evening to celebrate the work that is being done in the Charlotte community to advance smart growth and sustainability, and each year we are blown away by the incredible work we hear about from our honorees. This year was no exception.
We were thrilled when we heard that local teens Kate Harrison, Lucia Paulsen, and Logan Rackowitz were planning a rally as part of the global student strike for climate action. These young leaders see the threat posed by our rapidly changing climate, and are pushing our elected leaders to do something about it.
We attended their rally, held in solidarity with student climate rallies around the globe. Here's a look at the event.
