Since February, WNY Youth Climate Council members have met with Buffalo Common Council members, Rivera, Bollman, Nowakowski, Wyatt, Golombek, and Scanlon to share the progress of their campaign, ask what their constituents would like to see in a Climate Resolution, and learn about what issues impact them the most.
