In this series titled “pre-packaged” I explore the theme of young people inheriting the problems of our increasingly troubled planet.
This year has seen the uprising of 16 year old Greta Thunberg. Alongside her growing army of youths she has been fighting to take back their futures. They are, after all, the heirs of our planet and its environment. Calling out th tendency toward cognitive dissonance surrounding climate change, young people are demanding we stop looking the other way. Teenagers in the millions have been taking part in school strikes & demonstrations for climate action. It’s a global movement approaching the likes of a revolution, previously unseen from such young activists.
