The mission of the Young Voices for the Planet film series is to limit the magnitude of climate change and its impacts by empowering children and youth, through uplifting and inspiring success stories, to take an essential role in informing their communities — and society at large, challenging decision-makers, and catalyzing change.
We document youth speaking out, creating solutions and leading the change. These youth solutions to the climate crisis include stories of California kids banning plastic bags, Florida students saving their school $53,000 in energy costs, an 11-year-old German boy planting millions of trees and other young people changing laws, changing minds and changing society as they reduce the carbon footprint of their homes, schools and communities.
The Young Voices for the Planet films will reach an estimated 11 million viewers nationwide through distribution by American Public Television. APT provides thousands of hours of high-quality, top-rated, entertaining, educational and empowering programming to America’s 360+ public television stations.
You are invited to attend the Young Voices for the Planet Civic Engagement and Democracy Educator Workshops in the Pittsburgh area. Next workshop: March 9, 2019 at Lutherlyn Camp in Butler, PA. Please click the link below for more information and to register for workshops.
