Inconvenient Youth Is the New One-stop Shop for Teens Fighting Climate Change
What do you do if you want to live green but have no influence on household consumption or legislation? That’s the problem that faces teenagers across the world. That is, until now. The Climate Project’s new Inconvenient Youth website is the new one-stop shop for eco-minded teens.
Al Gore founded the Climate Project in 2006. Its purpose is to educate the public about the harmful effects of climate change and work toward solutions at a grassroots level worldwide. Inconvenient Youth is an initiative of the bigger project, which launched in 2006 as an effort to train 1,000 people to give Gore’s talk from An Inconvenient Truth. The Climate Project now has eight international branches with more than 3,000 presenters worldwide. Their new Inconvenient Youth initiative is the first to put teens front and center instead of throwing them a bone as an afterthought.
