Can Youth Be The Bi-Partisan Climate Communicator?

This is how young people are trying to make the climate crisis less of a bi-partisan debate and more of a humanitarian crisis.

In our series “Planet Forward,” veteran journalist Frank Sesno speaks to 15-year-old climate activist Alexandria Villaseñor and young climate innovator Rohan Agrawal about the power of storytelling when it comes to sharing the urgent message of climate change.

Hear more from Alexandria and other youth climate activists in the “Youth Activism” episode of the KCET series “Earth Focus”, the longest-running investigative environmental news program on U.S. television.

This story is part of Covering Climate Now, a global journalism collaboration strengthening coverage of the climate story.
