The WWF Allianz Southeast Climate Witness Program used student volunteers to conduct vulnerability research

The WWF Allianz Southeast Climate Witness Program selected 24 high school students to engage in vulnerability research on the Southeast Rivers and Streams Ecoregion.

The student volunteers earned the opportunity to work with scientists on their research and learn about climate change from some of the most active scientists in the field today. In Washington, D.C., the students had the experience to speak in a briefing on Capitol Hill in which Chairman Markey of the Select Committee on Energy Indepence and Global Warming greeted them as the Green Generation and encouraged them to continue to take action on climate change.
