The Vekeo event was hosted by Greenpeace and guest speaker Kylin Wagner, Grassroots Assistant at Greenpeace. Grassroots aims to empower people and make a difference. One way to make a difference helps schools to start a solar campaign in their community or campus. If students or teachers bring solar to school that will bring them independence and educates the student and gives them the value. Greenpeace is against offshore drilling of all kinds, and tried everything to stop the drilling in the arctic. Fortunately it currently has been taken off the table. Greenpeace does not endorse any political candidate, and calls on corporate interests, especially those of the fossil fuel industry, out of politics.
