Weed Warriors – a local Burien non-profit, Humanities Washington and the King County Library System will host Climate Outloud, a facilitated discussion about the relationship between climate change and the youth, on Saturday, July 29, at the Burien Library.

The discussion will focus on climate change and what local organizations and younger generations are doing to secure a livable future, including the federal and state cases made against the government for failing to protect the children’s right to a healthy future.

The panelists are Aji Piper, a plaintiff from the federal and Washington state cases; Andrea Rodgers, attorney for the plaintiffs; Gabe Mandell, a Climate Justice Ambassador; and attorney Eric Dickman. Organizations taking part in the event include members of 350.org, South Seattle Climate Action Network, Rising Tide, Carbon Free PSE and Plant for the Planet.

The event begins at 11 a.m. in the main conference room on the first floor of the library, 400 SW 152nd St. in Burien. The panel discussion starts at 2 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Climate Outloud is a part of the King County Library System’s “Everybody’s Talking About It” series.
