The front line: How millennials are shaping solutions to tackle climate change
Neil Yeoh, Echoing Green
The majority of millennials acknowledge that climate change is an issue. But new articles are published daily trying to make young people care more about the problem. The sea of complex jargon and slow-moving policy debates overwhelm the conversation, making it harder to inspire people to get involved. Despite this, there is a movement millennials who are rising up to rethink solutions to tackle climate change. To create solutions that last, let’s demystify the message. Join this session to learn how inspiring social entrepreneurs are tackling climate change, and how we can support the climate action movement
