Voices of Climate Change: Inspiring Youth

Commitment by

Rushing, Rae Anne Rushing

In 2010, Rushing committed to produce a globally distributed documentary which creatively inspires youth, in particular young women, to embrace engineering careers as the groundwork for developing realistic, practical, concrete solutions for mitigating climate change. As the first step towards production of the documentary, Rushing will sponsor a video competition among university students. The winning entry, and parts of the honorable mention entries, will be used in the final documentary. The documentary will also include creative portrayals of engineering feats and specific stories of accomplished, enthusiastic, witty, awe-inspiring engineers.
