During the Rivalry Game Halftime
Press Release – PROVO, Utah – For the final event of rivalry week, Cougars and Utes will continue the spirit of unity for The Climate Campaign with a slew of volunteers shining purple lights from the mountains during halftime of the “Holy War” football game this Saturday.
Students involved with The Climate Campaign will shine nearly 100 purple lights from same mountain that the “Y” is on, but a little bit to the north to be more in view for the stadium.
“We want this to spark questions and get people talking about climate change,” said Nick Huey, director of The Climate Campaign. “Seeing the red and blue brought together will hopefully inspire people to set aside their differences, even during rivalry week.”
Previous events meant to inspire unity on climate change included Cougars placing purple flowers on Ute student cars and Utes visiting BYU with a football helmet painted with the Climate Campaign’s slogan, “United We Change.” The successful visit of the Utes to BYU campus during the divisive rivalry week shows the possibility of setting aside differences for important issues like climate change.

These students come from BYU and the University of Utah with the common belief that climate change awareness is the key to a sustainable future. These events aren’t sponsored by BYU or the U of U.
