Earth Day Live:
INVEST IN OUR PLANET: COMMUNITY AND YOUTH ACTIVISM WEBINAR
The youngest generations will be the ones to live with the most devastating effects of climate change and plastic pollution. Therefore, it is essential that leaders and changemakers from younger generations step up and make a difference in their communities while inspiring their peers to do the same. Although young, they have immense power to disrupt the status quo.
This Earth Day Live, taking place on March 31 at 12PM ET, will feature several youth activists who are bravely taking action to not only clean up the plastic pollution in our environment, but also investing in ways to put an end to mismanaged waste. Panelists will discuss the importance of addressing plastic pollution worldwide, how they created change in their community, and how others can get involved in the solution.
