Climate Arts Camp!
350 Eugene intern Phacelia Cramer has led two joyous, fun-filled climate art camps and plans one for summer 2018. Campers swam, held baby goats, created art, and, in 2016, brought their passion to Eugene’s Oil Train Protest, where they spoke alongside students from Europe about the folly of oil “bomb trains” running past homes. The protest drew about 200 people, and youth voices were featured on at least one local TV station.
In 2017, campers improved their jump-in-the-pool skills, created artwork, and wrote to representatives to oppose the Jordan Cove fracked-gas-for-export pipeline we’ve defeated twice and, under Trump, must now defeat again—this time for good.
