Using Decision-making and Entrepreneurial Thinking
Young Voices for the Planet is a film series that aims to share the success stories of the youth who are working to limit the negative effects of climate change. The goal is to address communities and society as a whole to make a difference for the planet.
In this film, a 12-year-old boy named Alec Loorz couldn't stand the fact that kids will one day be highly affected by climate change. He made a presentation and website meant specifically for kids, which included fun graphics and animations for younger audiences to be excited about it. He even founded the organization, Kids Vs. Global Warming, where he educates them on how they can take action. Watch the video below!
