Norvergence – From Syrian children holding Pokemon Go placard to save their lives to climate change protest: Why the children give us hope for the better future

This attitude and behavior of youth have given an immense hope to the team Norvergence and all people out there hoping for a better future.


Environmentalists at Norvergence believe that the different ways in which today’s generation especially children are raising their voice against injustice or climate change, it seems the future of this planet is in safe hands.

September 20, 2019, millions of people have come out in large numbers to protest against climate change demanding urgent action. The global movement led by the Swedish school striker, “Greta Thunberg” has now taken the shape of a massive revolt.

Greta herself tweeted about the enthusiasm that people showed up in favor of the environment. 

“New York City is looking huge! Lower Manhattan is packed with people. It will take ages for everyone to get to Battery Park. #ClimateStrike #FridaysForFuture

Overall, the demonstrations were taking place across the 185 countries and Norvergence gets hope for the better future from it as the young generation is guiding all of us towards a sustainable society.

Now, Norvergence wants you to shift your focus from this towards the Syrian situation (especially in 2016).
