We are the International Youth Climate Podcast and we’re happy that you’ve found your way to our Website! We are a non profit project composed by members between 12 and 23, started by a 17 year old.
We started this project with the belief that we need two things as weapons to fight against the inactive leaders and a society which is still denying climate change: schoolstrikes taking place every friday and knowledge.
Knowing actual, concrete facts means we can argue against the people who want to destroy our future with their inactivity. Additionally, having a comprehensive knowledge of environmental issues is crucial to discuss with parents and teachers who want us to stop striking and don’t want to change their way of life adopting an eco-friendly mindset. Being aware of what science says can also help us to confront politicians who aren’t taking on their responsibilities towards climate change and to communicate with the press which could help us by spreading our message. What we need is an environmental education based on facts and on science. Because the scientists are desperately telling us that we need to act and that we have to do it now!
However, we need to find a source of this knowledge which isn’t taught to us in schools. But finding trustworthy sources can be very difficult – in the end we are just kids who, between school and a teenager life, are trying to save the world and our future and we often don’t have the resources to look for them. To find a solution to this problem, our team thought to create a podcast searching for trustworthy sources and then sharing the knowledge we acquired with everyone. So if you want to increase your knowledge on climate change, but you can’t do it on your own, you’re in the right place – you can listen to our podcast on the way to school, while you take a break from studying or simply when you’re in the mood of learning some interesting, scientific news.
And of course, this podcast is also for everyone who would just like to hear some facts about climate change!
We hope you will enjoy!
