Climate change is the defining issue of our time and now is the defining moment to do something about it. There is still time to tackle climate change, but it will require an unprecedented effort from all sectors of society. After the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, has just taken place the 2019 Climate Action Summit on 23 September, with plans to address the global climate emergency. The Summit had asked real actions to leaders, from government, business and civil society, in order to activate the transformation that is urgently needed and propel action that will benefit everyone.

The climate change and sustainability emergencies have burst into the public consciousness thanks to many high-profile activists. But among them, there is a young woman called Greta Thunberg who is a real example of this new generation that is the most informed, most educated, most connected generation in human history.

“We deserve a safe future.
And we demand a safe future. Is that really too much to ask?”

Speaking of Greta, at only 16 years old, She has become the face of the growing youth movement demanding global climate action. She started ‘Fridays for Future’ school strikes a year ago in Sweden that has now turned global, demanding governments to take drastic measures to cut back on carbon emissions.

Youngs are in the front line. The UN Youth Climate Summit, taken place on Saturday, September 21 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, has been a platform for young climate action leaders to showcase their solutions at the United Nations and to meaningfully engage with decision-makers on the defining issue of our time.

The Youth Climate Action Summit brought youth climate champions together from more than 140 countries and territories to share their solutions on the global stage, and deliver a clear message to world leaders: we need to act now to address climate change.

“Sometimes we just simply have to find a way. The moment we decide to fulfill something, we can do anything.
And I’m sure the moment we start behaving as if we were in an emergency, we can avoid climate and ecological catastrophe. Humans are very adaptable: we can still fix this. But the opportunity to do so will not last for long.
We must start today. We have no more excuses.”

But Greta it’s not alone in such an important battle. And the real change has to start from the education of the leader of the future.
