The Southeast has historically been a launching pad for significant, world-changing social movements. On November 4-6th at the 7th Southeast Student Renewable Energy Conference (SSREC), the power and energy of the more than 400 youth organizers in attendance made it easy to feel that we too are making history.

Hosted by the Southern Energy Network, youth from across the Southeast gathered for an incredible weekend full of essential organizing trainings, motivating workshops, and inspirational speakers. Youth in the Southeast are organized, trained, and energized! After this year’s SSREC, they’re turning up the heat to head home and ramp up their campaigns to achieve a 100% clean energy economy.

At the conference, I.D.E.A.S. for UCFI.D.E.A.S. for UF and new affiliateEcoRollins attended the 2011 Southeast Student Renewable Energy Conference (SSREC) in Ashville, NC — along with over 400 student leaders from the SE!
