Hybrid Event: Youth-Driven Climate Action: Power and Potential (Climate & Democracy) – Sep 21

Posted by The Andrea Mitchell Center on September 19, 2023

AS THE EFFECTS OF A CHANGING CLIMATE become clearer each year, in forms ranging from extreme weather to bleached corral, many of the most powerful and effective advocates for climate action are young people who foresee truly catastrophic consequences within their lifetimes. In movements including Fridays for Future, Sunshine, and The Last Generation, youth are driving meaningful climate action around the globe through governmental and extra-governmental channels. For the inaugural event in the CLIMATE AND DEMOCRACY series, and following a landmark victory in Montana for Our Children’s Trust, the Andrea Mitchell Center and the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities are honored to host three activists in a conversation about the power and potential of youth activism and intergenerational alliances for climate action.

Date and Time: Thursday. September 21, 4:30 pm

Location: Perelman Center for Political Science and Economics, 133 South 36th Street, The Forum (Room 250), Philadelphia, PA 19104
