MIA Among Co-sponsors of Event 'We, the Climate Generation'
People of all ages, faiths, and nationalities are joining together for an important cause: to save our planet from the damage done by climate change. The United Nations, which came together as “we, the peoples,” will hold its annual Climate Change Summit in September to address the ecological issues endangering our planet as well as people’s livelihoods and wellbeing. On June 12th, activists of all ages—“we, the climate generation”—came together to do the same.
Keynote speaker Lorna Gold, author of Climate Generation: Awakening to Our Children’s Future, described her drive to protect her children’s future which led her to explore the extent of climate change and what she could do about it. A panel of activists shared their experiences as individuals and members of their communities taking action for climate justice. The presenters, who were teenagers, adults, and grandparents, come from different faith, education, and national backgrounds, as well as different professional specialties and activist organizations.
The event ended in a call to action from more than 150 Youth Activists, faith-based organizations, UN Delegates and more to continue to protect our planet.
