Local students are rallying around climate change. Last week, youth activist Xiuhtezcatl Martinez visited four schools in the Roaring Fork Valley to initiate a social media challenge, sponsored by CORE and CLEER with support from the Town of Carbondale. KDNK’s Raleigh Burleigh has more.

State lawmakers denied funding for the Colorado Energy Office last session, but Federal funds will keep it in operation until next July. KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh found out how that will affect local renewable energy programs.

On Thursday morning's Nonprofit Spotlight, Amy Hadden Marsh spoke to Brandon Jones and Maisa Metcalf from CLEER, Clean Energy Economy for the Region. Brandon is the newest edition to the energy outreach team and he says, "CLEER supports KDNK because y'all do honest reporting, you play the funkiest music, and the volunteer DJs are amazing. We listen to KDNK all the time."
