Brower Youth Awards
Each year the Earth Island Institute honors young environmental activists from around the country with the prestigious Brower Youth Awards. Ripple was hired to promote the ceremony, hosted by Julia Butterfly Hill and social justice attorney Van Jones; and to conduct media trainings for the award recipients to improve their skills as they move forward in their activist careers. The event was a huge success! More than 750 people attended the ceremony at the Calvin Simmons Auditorium in Oakland, California, and several high-profile media outlets covered the story including ABC News, MSNBC, and San Francisco Chronicle.
