ORGANIZER BIO:

I’m from Colombia and my mother has always taught me to respect others; she always said “it doesn’t matter if it’s a person, a plant, wind, water or an animal; we all have to be respected.” So, I grew up with that idea. I remember that when I was a kid I would see a broken leaf, I would run to get a bandage and patch it up. Now im proudly the president of the environmental club at Bergen Community College; I also run a fifth graders environmental club called the “Paw Lovers”. It is so important to teach a younger generation how important our environment is. We live here and there is no other Earth so if we don’t take care of it what is going to happened then… This planet belongs to the younger generation and when they grow they will hand it to their younger generation. Overall becoming an environmentalist was a dream when I was a kid, now is a passion and when I get my degrees is going to become my life.

COMMENTS:

Hi, this is Krystina De Caro, organizer of the iMatter March in the Big Bear area. I am calling upon every person in Big Bear to join with me and march in our streets to demand that our survival is considered a top priority. In may 2011 we will be marching for our future. We, as a generation will stand together with a unified voice and let the world know that climate change is not about money, it’s not about power, it’s not short term interest, foreign oil, political agendas, energy efficiencies, or planting trees in our backyard. It is about our survival. Climate change is about the survival of every generation to come. So join me in our city and we will let the ruling generation know that we matter. Krystina and Anthony

Pe 8 mai 2011 au loc câteva sute de marşuri în jurul lumii drept semnal de alarmă. În Bucureşti vom mărşălui în linişte, pe trotuar, din piaţa Romană (la coloane) până la piaţa Universităţii. Scopul acestui marş este de a informa şi a trezi tineretul la realitate. Organizatorii acestui marş sunt nişte copii. Copiii vor ca ceilalţi copii să ştie că trebuie să fim responsabili cu Planeta. Vom avea cu noi doar afişe sugestive. Nu vom striga, nu vom cânta, nu vom “deranja”. Toată lumea este invitată. Mai ales părinţii, alături de copiii lor.
