Your Call: The 2016 Brower Youth Award Winners

On the October 12 edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with three of this year’s Brower Youth Award winners.

Every year, the awards honor young leaders for their accomplishments in the environmental movement. From taxing oil and gas companies, to turning recycled plastic into material for 3D printing, these young people are combining cutting-edge innovation with urgent solutions to the environmental crises our communities face. What can we learn from them—and what will they come up with next? Tweet your questions and comments to @yourcallradio and join us live at 10am with me, Rose Aguilar and you.
