Climate & Youth

Untelevised: The Podcast

09-02-2022 • 1 hr 20 mins

Young people are the face of the climate movement, both in who we are shown and who the messaging is targeted at.

In this episode we investigate this heightened interest amongst young people, asking whether it is a natural part of the optimism of youth or it has come about through necessity. And explore the consequences of placing this weight on young shoulders.

To do this, we’re speaking to young people who are fighting for change across two different continents.
