STILL LIFE WITH SWELTERING HEAT AND RISING SEAS
The young generation of today inherit a planet moving quickly towards a climate catastrophe. How many warnings will the world leaders need before they take serious action to heal the damage made by their own and former generations, to save the future of their children and grand children?
On the 1st of March 2019 Youth Strikes for Climate movement published in the Guardian: “We are the voiceless future of humanity ... We will not accept a life in fear and devastation. We have the right to live our dreams and hopes. United we will rise on 15 March and many times after until we see climate justice. We demand the world’s decision makers take responsibility and solve this crisis. You have failed us in the past. But the youth of this world has started to move and we will not rest again.” Jonas Kampus, a 17 year old student activist, from near Zurich, Switzerland, helped initiate the letter, which was created collectively via a global coordination group numbering about 150 students, including the first youth climate striker, Sweden’s 16 year old Greta Thunberg.
