Climate Change Contest for Youth

Adapted from a The Climate Reality Project press release:

Young people have the most to gain from solving the climate crisis, and the sooner the better.  They didn't cause the issue, but they'll have to live with it for decades.  For far too long, they and their interests have been ignored by leaders who refuse to protect the planet.  On September 23rd, this is going to change when exceptional young people get a chance to put their questions to the world's decision-makers and speak for their generation at the U. N. Climate Summit in New York City.
