Founders of Forces of Nature, Will Charouhis and Lily Paden, met with the Executive Secretary of the Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Patricia Espinosa, to share their generation’s concerns. In Executive Secretary Espinosa's address to the youth at The Institute of Peace, she stated: “Young people must be involved in the decision-making.” She denounced the fact that: “Youth perspectives are still viewed by some as something nice to have, rather than integral to the discussion.”
