InStyle: Three Young Environmental Activists You Need to Know. The planet’s boldest allies are its youngest residents. Listen to what they have to say about protecting the future.
When Greta Thunberg took the podium at the U.N.’s Climate Action Summit in 2019 at just 16 years old and declared, “You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,” it became clear that the planet’s most necessary allies are its youngest residents. And that until that moment (and for a while after it) some of the strongest voices in the fight for equitable, sustainable environmental change had been silenced.
In the two years since, the climate crisis has gone from bad to worse, and awareness of it has continued to grow, especially among younger generations who are motivated and devoted to clean beauty, sustainable fashion, and the cause of a greener future. And we have a new generation of activists to thank for the continued drumbeat of do more, do better — we are out of time.
