The National Center for Science Education (NCSE) just announced its Friend of Darwin and Friend of the Planet Awardees for 2021.

The Friend of the Planet awardees includes Climate Generation, a Minneapolis-based non-profit focused on climate literacy and action. In the announcement, NCSE's executive director Anne Reid said that she "can't praise Climate Generation highly enough for its work on climate literacy and action, especially for its extensive and effective outreach to educators."

The announcement of both awards may be read here, It very briefly describes the achievements of each awardee with comments by Anne Reid.

Congratulations to Climate Generation and thanks. I also add congratulations and thanks to all those honored by NCSE.

Coincidentally, Star Tribune writer Gail Rosenbaum has a Q & A  with Lindsay Kirkland, Education Manager of Climate Generation in the July 31, 2021 edition. It appears that the interview occurred before she knew about the award. The Q & A may be behind a subscription wall.
