One Planet: Young Activists Fighting For Social And Environmental Justice

Oct 4, 2020


On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we're speaking with three of this year’s Brower Youth Award winners. Every year, the awards honor young leaders for their accomplishments in the environmental movement.

This year's winners are protecting indigenous lands, helping marginalized youth grow food, and creating a healing space for incarcerated youth. These young people are calling for and implementing solutions. What can we learn from them?

 

Guests:

Diego Arreola, environmental and human rights activist, and creator of Green Speaking

 

Danielle Boyer, Ojibwe teen entrepreneur, author, educator, inventor, and founder of The STEAM Connection

Alexandra Collins, environmental activist and founder of Students Against Ethylene Oxide
