The voice of the generation most impacted by the climate crisis must be heard.........
We know that our futures are at stake. And the solutions are going to take a whole lot more than riding our bikes and changing lightbulbs. We need to look at the core of the problem. We need a revolutionary mindset shift.
And we, the generation with the most at risk, are making that happen. We are the solution.
We are the Youth vs Global Warming.
