It is often said that young people are the next generation, poised to inherit the earth that we adults will pass on to them. However, many youth of today aren’t waiting for adults to give them a “pass.” Instead, they are taking action now in their everyday lives to be the change they want to see in the world.
These admirable young activists include those working to create an equitable food system in Richmond, CA, home to one of the largest oil refineries in the country, becoming Fair Trade advocates at the age of 10 and co-founding a project to create economically-sustainable biofuels in India. This year’s spring edition of the San Francisco Green Festival will feature 5 change makers who are building a youth-led movement for environmental equity, and creating a ripple effect throughout the globe in the process. Join us in a celebration of the NOW Generation!
