Exploring Charlottesville’s Earth Week

On this edition of WNRN’s Sunday Morning Wake-Up Call, Amy Predmore and Tatyanna Patten, Co-Presidents of Charlottesville’s Earth Week, join Rick Moore to talk about the 10-day celebration. Predmore and Patten discuss some of the general trends of the environmental movement, as well as the events coming up locally for Earth Week (which runs April 18-27). From environmental movies to tree plantings and concerts, there are more than a dozen events on the calendar.

The guests also discuss the Discover Transportation Freedom Initiative, a plan to get people to discover alternatives to commuting by car; as well as the effort to popularize Compact Fluorescent Lightbulbs.

Amy Predmore says that Earth Week is about “bringing together people who care about change.” If you want to see change, you can get involved by donating or attending Earth Week events. For more information, you can contact Earth Week on their website.
