What Can Our Younger Generations do to Help Stop
2019 has seen the issue of Climate Change as a topic on everyone’s lips and minds. Youth movements and youth activism is on the rise and Hearts in the Ice applauds all youth that engage in the conversation. You are the leaders of today!
We need your participation and we need to hear your voices!
Climate change can be an incredibly complex, multi-faceted Topic. But the basic truths of the crisis – that the science overwhelmingly demonstrates that modern global warming is a man-made phenomenon are readily accessible to everyone. There is no “one size fits all” for our issues that concern our changing climate.
One thing that is universal and true: We protect what we love.
So….how to we actually do the “protecting” part of our species, oceans, resources and natural world? One answer we have come up with that resonates with many, is to engage. Get involved. Play an active role in the issues you care about, encourage discussion, learn about science, be curious, be politically active. Be an advocate for displaced people, endangered species. Be mindful and thoughtful around your daily choices. Seek to better understand the source of your food, energy, clothing.
And please, please, please – Get outside and connect to our precious natural world.

This Chief Seattle quote
will forever be our collective truth
“All things share the same breath – the beast, the tree, the man… the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports. Take only memories, leave nothing but footprints. Man does not weave this web of life. He is merely a strand of it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”
