We’ve got some great news! YERT was featured on this week’s edition of "Living on Earth," our favorite national environmental radio program. You may have heard this program on iTunes or any number of public radio stations across the country. We hope you enjoy the show!

Also, a YERT friend and interviewee, Tony Kvale, founder of Kvale Good Natured Games, is trying to get ahead in an online competition at Forbes.com. He’s gotten into the semifinals, but needs YERTy help to cross the line in the top five! Can you take a moment to vote for him– and help propel a thoroughly green game company into the minds of Forbes readers? Thanks for your help!
There are two options for voting (takes just a couple minutes):
Straight to the ballot itself. Check off Kvale games, submit & follow instructions.

And finally, a quick update about the YERT team… Ben and Julie (and their beautiful new baby Bailey) have moved temporarily to Pittsburgh while Ben performs with the Pittsburgh City Theater. Erika continues her work with Ashoka in Washington, DC. In the meantime, Mark has jumped into Pittsburgh’s green community, and is working to secure funding to complete the YERT film and related curriculum and discussion materials. Our primary video camera (Canon XH A1) was damaged by sparks during the road trip, so "she" is in the shop right now, getting ready for new life documenting whatever else we encounter in these early stages of YERT Part 2!
We also have to apologize for the dearth of new videos for your entertainment. We haven’t forgotten about them, but we need a little time to put some cash into YERT and generally sort out our lives before we can continue at full steam. But continue we will! We’re also on the hunt for unpaid interns who are interested in new media, film, and marketing experience– there are plenty of ways that students young and old can get involved and get some cool experience at the same time. Please spread the word to friends and family– and film teachers (and their students)!
That’s all for now. Thanks for sticking with us all these months (and years!), and we’ll be in touch again very soon.
Ben, Julie, Erika, and Mark (Your YERT Team)
