I was pleasantly surprised by the youth presence at COP21. There is a new generation eager and ready to address the climate problem.
A substantial portion of the 10,000 non-governmental accredited "observers" at the event were born after the international community took notice of the climate problem in the late 1980s. At COP21, they weren't just observing. They were engaged, energetic, articulate and effective.
More Than Observers
Timothy Damon of SustainUS made the point that was echoed by many youth. They will be living in the world impacted by climate change and they want their voice to be heard.
