Maybe you’re wondering who we are.
Honestly, we’re just a bunch of crazy pupils who thought that doing more work in their free time would be a good idea.
We are from Australia, Brazil, Canada, England, France, Germany, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, and the USA, just to name a few countries!
We are of different age, knowledge, language, religion and character.
However, we have one common goal which is to save our earth! But we don’t want to become heroes like superwoman, batman or the guardians of the galaxy: we just want to save our future.
We want to make sure that it won’t be made of natural catastrophes, suffering, and death, plagued by people forced to leave their homes and countries letting them die outside their border. Our aim is to ensure that our future won’t be controlled by the permanent fear of dying or losing our houses and our friends in massive forest fires, floods and heavy storms caused by climate change. We want to avoid suffering of hunger because there isn’t enough land to cultivate as most of our planet has turned into a desert and seeing more and more pain each day through news.
We want to have a future that is worth living for. A future without fear and pain in which our own kids will be free to grow up without worrying about their lives.
However, to reach our goal, to stop climate change and to have a proper future we need to act now! And since most politicians seem not to understand the issue, it is our duty as kids and future adults to explain them the urgency of our current situation.
And this is why Youth Climate podcast was born: we are kids giving information to other kids to give them the weapons to open the eyes of our leaders and force them to act.
We are kids who have decided to employ most of their time, other than in school, homework, exams, hobbies, friends and the teenager drama, in explaining to other kids scientific facts.
We are kids who have chosen to work with science and scientists every single week.
We are kids fighting to open the eyes of the world on climate change through the knowledge we share.
And we hope that you will listen to our work, so that our sweat, our work and our tears weren’t for nothing.
