How can we forge a global movement that’s truly inclusive and comprehensive to fight for the future health of our planet? It starts by ensuring that youth changemakers and frontline communities have prominent seats at the table.
Youth, often architects of innovation, bear the heaviest burden when it comes to the consequences of climate change. They are the future. Their engagement is not just desirable, but imperative.
Frontline communities possess valuable traditional and local knowledge about their environments that can inform climate solutions. They are not simply stakeholders; they are powerful advocates for their own futures.
In this quarter’s Matter of Impact, we sharpen our focus on these critical voices, and tell the stories of grantees who are doing exactly that.
