Young people have often been on the forefront of movements for justice and social change. In recent years, they took to the streets to demand climate justice, telling the world to stop unsustainable practices that are harming our natural environment and climate.
Young people know that the impacts of climate change are not borne equally or fairly, between the rich and poor, women and men, and older and younger generations. The final session of the SDG Media zone focuses on the need for climate justice – looking at the climate crisis through a human rights lens and based on the belief that by working together we can create a better future for present and future generations.
Young and inspiring climate activists, who are changing the way we use our resources and understand climate change, explain why it is now more important than ever to prioritize the planet.
