Vote for one of the crew to be a Hopenhagen Ambassador!

Hey everyone! Take a minute to get over to Huffington Post and vote for longtime youth activist, blogger, and cyclist David Kroodsma to come to the Copenhagen Climate Conference as a Hopenhagen Ambassador. Check out his video below and vote before the contest closes on Friday!

I first met David when he was organizing the Climate Ride, a great program that helped raise money for longtime IGHIH and youth movement organizations like Focus the Nation and the Chesapeake Climate Action Network. One of the things has impressed me about David as I’ve gotten to know him better is his selfless commitment and stamina, whether it’s organizing Climate Ride or volunteering for hours of data entry with us at 350.org — I guess you’d expect nothing less from a guy who biked across South America promoting climate awareness.

David would be a great person to have on the ground in Copenhagen and would make an excellent contribution to the reporting happening here at IGHIH. So go cast your vote already!


About Jamie


Jamie is the co-coordinator of 350.org, an international global warming campaign. A recent college graduate, he lives in San Francisco, CA.

He's also an early member of the youth climate movement, leading one of Energy Action's first campaigns in 2005: Road to Detroit, a nationwide veggie-oil bus tour to promote sustainable transportation.
