The climate change generation wants to be heard

Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders, but they aren’t letting age limit activism in the realm of environmental advocacy. The Youth Climate Strike was inspired by Greta Thunberg, a teenage girl in Sweden who stopped going to school on Fridays to protest climate change. The Sunrise Movement promotes environmental organizing among millennials, aiming to support Green New Real type legislation. These movements are rapidly spreading among young people who will have the power to make change.
