Back to Indonesia, Just today we were Interview by one of most powerful Senior Journalist in Indonesia, Mrs. Desi Anwar, who was also attending COP21 in Paris last week.

cnn3It is such an opportunity for us to spread the message and tell the people especially the young generation to change their perspective about climate change and start taking action NOW!

We were talking about our Youth4Arctic project and also about the latest COP21 in Paris.

We are trying our best to spread the message about climate crisis in the world now, but what we are doing is just a small step, we need help from every single person in this world to start taking action NOW!

it is not about how big your action is, but it is more important to do a simple and small action but do it RIGHT NOW! 🙂

Kevin and HeikeKevin@youth4planet.org: I like to be at COP21 in Paris to find so many perspectives here. We are all from different backgrounds but put our attention towards climate change. The solutions are there. Simple actions like saving water, saving electricity, using public transport can be done by everyone. It is a question of mindset: will we do that? We are in a crisis, and the time to get moving is right now.

Seeing Climate Change from Faith Perspective

Yesterday I was so impressed with this conference that was talking about climate change from ethic and faith perspective.

people were talking that the way to solve climate change is by changing the system and mindset.

most of the people know what they can do to slow down climate change, but we have to change our mindset and see this as a crisis and have more heart into this case.
take sometime to feel the nature, when you do that, you will love nature, and by loving nature, you will start to take care about our earth.

#ExxonKnew

Yesterday, we attended a very interesting gathering of people from around the world. A mock trial of Exxon vs The people were being held at a warehouse outside Paris. Apparently, having the knowledge of climate change since the 70s and all its effects, Exxon still chose profit over people and went ahead with their operation to extract oil from all over the United states. We had witnesses coming from the far end of Alaska and the Arctic, to the archipelago of the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean. They were all telling stories of the effects of what climate change and Exxon caused to their homes, family, community and livelihoods. It was devastating to hear livelihoods were being gambled for profit. It made me wonder whether other companies which have been causing a lot of damages to the environment and people, knew about climate change since before they’ve started their operations as well. We all need to simply sit down and remember that the wealth of a country is its air, water, soils, forests, minerals, rivers, lakes, oceans, biodiversity. And not by how much livelihoods is at stakes.

 

After the event Kevin and I had the opportunity to have a short interview with Bill McKibben about his expatations from #cop21 and what youth can do…
