Focus the - accelerates our transformation to a clean energy future by fostering connections between generations, and empowering young people through education, civic engagement, and action.

Campus Climate Challenge - a project of more than 30 leading youth organizations throughout the U.S. and Canada. The Challenge leverages the power of young people to organize on college campuses and high schools across Canada and the U.S. to win 100% Clean Energy policies at their schools.

Its Getting Hot in Here - - a collection of voices from the student and youth leaders of the global movement to stop global warming. Originally created by youth leaders to allow youth to report from the International Climate Negotiations in Montreal in 2005, It’s Getting Hot in Here has since grown into a global online community with over 300 writers from countries around the world.

 -- Recycling Instrument Strings --

Did you know that acoustic guitar strings are made of bronze wire wound around steel wire, while electric guitar strings are made using nickel wire?

Apparently there is so much value in old instrument strings that a Japanese music chain has begun accepting them for recycling - Mie Musical Instrument Retailers Association   - including strings from guitars, base guitars, and Taisho harps.
