Alaska Eyewitness to Climate Change Tour

Will in AlaskaWill’s Eyewitness presentation is an effective tool for motivating the general public and policymakers towards climate action. With support from Clean Energy Works and several Alaska-based organizations, Will’s Eyewitness message hit the road with a tour of Alaska’s major metropolitan centers, Juneau, Anchorage and Fairbanks. Will sat down with media in all three cities to share his story and the role Alaska can play in shaping its clean energy future. In Fairbanks alone, Will met with faith-based leaders and arctic scientists at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. He also mobilized the dog mushing community and spoke with student groups. Over 500 Alaskans signed postcards for their two Senators urging them to create more clean energy jobs and protect our national security.

Check out the Will Steger Foundation blog – On the Road with Will Steger for details on the tour.
