Climate patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, weather is becoming more extreme and greenhouse emissions have reached record levels. When talking about climate change and global warming, the current UN Secretary-General said, “There are too many leaders who refuse to listen, and too few people acting according to science.”
Young people in China are taking action. The Roots & Shoots university volunteers will incorporate environmental education into their courses when they teach in rural areas. They will explain the impact of climate change on humans and ask the children to voice their opinions. The children’s appeals for climate change will be recorded, and in the near future, at the UN Climate Summit, leaders from all over the world will hear the voices of these Chinese children.
