We can learn from our children

Mindful Living | Sustainability

The urgency of the actions taken by young activists such as Greta Thunberg bring into sharp relief the state of the climate crisis we are in. Children are taking a stand and we need to listen. We are taking more from our planet than we need to, and we have reached not just a tipping point but a state of emergency.

The film I’ve linked to here is by my wonderful friend Hugo Guinness. It a timely reminder of why a generation needs to be heard and why we all need to take action to ensure the fears expressed by these young voices do not become a reality. As Greta Thunberg said:

‘Now we all have a choice. We can create transformational action that will safeguard the living conditions for future generations… We children are doing this because we want our hopes and dreams back.’
