“Youth delegates from around the world are urging the United States and other wealthy nations to deeply cut greenhouse gas emissions and compensate poorer nations for loss and damage from weather events caused by climate change.”

Broadcasting from the U.N. climate summit in Doha, we look at how young activists are loudly and unequivocally calling for drastic action to stop climate change. Youth delegates from around the world are urging the United States and other wealthy nations to deeply cut greenhouse gas emissions and compensate poorer nations for loss and damage from weather events caused by climate change. We’re joined by three guests: Amanda Nesheiwat, a 23-year old environmental coordinator for the city of Secaucus in New Jersey, which suffered flooding during Superstorm Sandy; Angeline Annesteus, a Haitian student at the College of the Atlantic and member of the climate justice group, "Earth In Brackets," which has been participating in protests throughout the climate conference in Doha; and Marco Cadena, London-based organizer with Push Europe and Young Friends of the Earth Europe.

NationofChange is a 501(c)3 charity. People tend to assume that many other organizations are (most nonprofits are NOT) but it’s that 501(c)3 status is a bit more rare than you think.
