INTRODUCTION We, the youth from around the world, are here to resolve what many generations have neglected and ignored. Young people are at their peak potential and with booming passion, we deserve to be heard and have our words genuinely considered. Climate change is happening everywhere and elements of colonization are still present in modern society; limiting Indigenous voices. We have recognized and put these points at the forefront, coming together to take initiative and prioritize the mindsets of our policymakers, leaders and older generations. Our previous attempts have been government-led but we hope to expand the leading group into a greater collective. This time around we need to learn from what we've done to go further than where we've been. "One challenge every country encounters is that no one listening. Either people do not know about the problem or don't speak up about it. The only people that seem to care are the youth." Aarthi, Student Raynne Penconek, Canada www.decarbonize.me
