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 in terms of limiting the negative effects of climate change. The goal is to address communities and society as whole to make a difference for the planet.
This film features three close friends that face the difficulties of combating climate change. These challenges include standing up to officials that disregard this phenomenon. The students were afraid to step up at first, but watching the films from Young Voices for the Planet inspired them to use entrepreneurial thinking to find a solution. What could they do? They decided to take on the challenge of convincing the officials at the town hall. Watch to find out if their plans worked.

They were helping to achieve goal #13 Climate Action. By showing this video to your students, you can inspire them and teach them that their voices and actions have worth.
Have your students create empowering speeches (like the girls did) or any kind of PSA regarding climate change or any other of the sustainable development goals. They can make posters, videos, or memes to get their message out there!
