Young activists called on world leaders on Saturday to take decisive actions against the worsening climate crisis threatening the entire planet.
Led by Swedish climate change activist, Greta Thunberg, and Kenyan environmental activist, Wanjuhi Njoroge, as well as Bruno Rodriguez and Luis Algona DE Aba, the young people said the climate crisis was urgent and in need of immediate actions.
Speaking at the Youth Climate Summit at the United Nations General Assembly in New York, the young people said climate change was one of the biggest political, economic and social crises facing the planet.
Secretary General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, who sat close to the UN Deputy Secretary General, Ms. Amina Mohammed, said he was inspired by the youth to redouble his efforts in combating climate change.
