Gordon Levitt details the approach to climate change of Our Children's Trust.

"Think globally, act locally" may get its biggest test in the realm of climate change. 

And local groups are indeed taking a number of approaches to the issue. 

In Eugene, young people presented the city council with a Climate Recovery Ordinance. 

The council recently directed city staff to prepare an ordinance, to be discussed at a public hearing in July. 

Our Children's Trust is a group advocating for climate action on behalf of young people; we hear from the group about the efforts in Eugene and elsewhere.
