  8. 8. ACE Presents: STAR WARS Return of the action team
  9. 9. Not so long ago, in a galaxy near, near to here... Action Teams across the empire were completing projects to fight the dark side, known as climate change, but Their efforts were not getting the attention they deserved.   ACE jedi’s devised a strategy to change this which meant getting action teams to submit completion forms and share their accomplishments with the rest of the empire. These forms would help show the galaxy that youth are already fighting to save planet iii.   This strategy was known as: STAR WARS Return of the Action team
