I am asking 100 people to donate $2 by September 8th so I can walk 325km from Port Augusta to Adelaide with the Australian Youth Climate Coalition to show support for renewable energy.
Please go to http://www.repowerportaugusta.org/miriam to donate.
Why is this important?
At this time, two old power stations in Port Augusta, South Australia are closing down, to be replaced with either a plant powered by gas or a mixture of solar thermal plants and wind turbines. Members of the Australian Youth Climate Coalition are walking 325km to show that young people care about climate change and want Australia to start the transition to renewable energy.
It is crucial that young people are a part of the solution and supporting this cause is the first step on a long walk (haha, pun).
