SHINE a LIGHT on Protecting Our Planet
August 18, 2021
Hosted by Orb
The Protect Our Planet Movement has youth in over 95 countries throughout Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, the United States, Asia and the Pacific finding new ways to combat climate change. In this episode, Orb, Planet Classroom’s virtual host, invites 13 of these impressive young leaders to share their work and unique experiences and inspire others to do the same. What are these young people looking for in a world post-Covid? Is it expanding media platforms? Government and global learning reform? Or an artistic/scientific collaboration throughout communities? Eco-justice is possible and the multimedia project, SHINE, will take you into the minds of these individuals to show you their hopes and dreams of a greater tomorrow.
