“Climate change is probably the most important issue that we face as a society today. I fear that by committing to making a difference, it will be too late to reverse the damage we have caused. There is not much that a single person can do about the issue, we have to make a collective effort to preserve our planet and I am confident that we can.”
“I truly believe that climate change impacts us all. It’s only a matter of time before these changes will be deemed irreversible. Young voices must be amplified as we can influence the change for not just the future of our lifetimes but also for future generations. ”
