Today’s youth are growing up with environmental crises as a basic narrative – a canvas on which life and choices happen. With that comes a largely altered vision of personal and societal futures compared to earlier generations in our part of the world. Beyond grief or despair, many are finding solidarity, purpose and joy in collective action, in celebrating community, the natural world, and connecting internationally with others.
We invite you to an inspiring conversation between people making change, and handling the reality of being young at this time. Ellen Miles is the founder of Nature is a Human Right and editor of the book by the same name. Chris Saltmarch is the co-founder of Labour for a Green New Deal.
