The Sundance Institute in partnership with Youth Speaks, is reaching out to the younger generation by inviting slam poets to Sundance to perform global warming poetry.  Robert Redford has a long history of commitment to the environment, and he feels in this year of pending change it is a critical time for the youth to get involved.   Art is the medium he’d like to see them express their priorities for the environment, and a poetry slam with a theme of global warming is just the ticket.

Many of the participants are first time voters, and the hope is that through expressing their ideas about this mammoth concept of a changing climate, poets and audience members will want to take a more active role in shaping their future. Isn’t it exciting when youth are really passionate about something, especially when it’s the environment? The energy put into their passion is enough to fuel change around the country.  Keep slamming!

Robert was interviewed on NPR’s Talk of the Nation to discuss the poetry slam.  Follow the link if you’d like to listen: Robert Redford NPR.
