Youth Leading The Way
The climate crisis isn't going to wait for us to grow up. Every one of us can make a difference. We just need to get started. - Will Charouhis

Building a Garden
Picking it up
My name is Aidan S. and I am a 2nd grader...I want to share a short story about myself with you. When our school goes to a park on wednesdays and fridays, me and my friends go to a creek at the park. We built a fort w/ a dam there on a friday, we came back on wednesday to see that the dam had been flooded with trash. We then started picking it up and hauling it into a trash can right beside the creek. When we came back the next wednesday, we found some ducks in the pool that the dam had created. It was a good thing that we picked up the trash before the ducks came there.
...Thousands of people out in the world could be helping nature and you are one of those people who help.
-Aiden S., Arlington Virgina, age 8
At age 8, Aidan is already asking the tough questions, like "what would you change about the environment if you could change only one thing?"
People often ask me if we have what it takes to halt climate change. With youth like Agustín and Aidan already showing up, I'm betting on humanity.
