The Power and Hope of Youth
Recorded on the eve of the Fridays for the Future Climate Strike and as COP26 talks continue apace, we step out onto the streets of Glasgow to talk with young climate activists who bring their passion and energies to the discussions. University of Strathclyde students Ben Rapson, Ru Wallace and Lewis McDermott voice the concern many young people feel about the climate crisis and the need for action that goes beyond rhetoric. Medical students Lizzie O’Brien and Mehajabeen Farid describe how Students for Global Health is raising awareness about climate related inequalities and health issues which disproportionately affect some of the poorest people and areas of the world. We hear how the charity Reboot the Future helps amplify the call from young people for a more compassionate and sustainable future.
