Sarah Goody, age 16, is an eco-hero and climate activist. She is on a mission to spread awareness to kids worldwide about the climate crisis as she is launching a global initiative to help kids and adults worldwide speak up against climate change. She recently launched an online webinar series to help educate everyone on activism and the current climate crisis. In this 4-part webinar series Goody, who was recently recognized for her work in climate reform by Nickelodeon & Time For Kids in the 2020 Kid of The Year Award Show, will come together with celebrities and top youth activists in a 4-part webinar series that aims to give children and young adults the tools to ignite change.
Climate change is an issue directly impacting millions of people around the world that threatens the very livelihoods and futures of every young person. Yet very few elementary, middle, and high school students have an adequate understanding of climate change and its impacts on society. The generation bearing the worst impacts of climate change, in some cases, doesn’t even realize they can take action now to prevent catastrophe. This is why Climate NOW is hosting a 4-part Climate Action Crash Course Webinar Series that aims to give children and young adults the tools to ignite change in their own communities.
Climate NOW was founded in 2019, and has since worked with over 10,000 youth from across the world and provided educational presentations to over 70 K-12 schools globally. Climate NOW hopes to combat climate change by providing basic climate education to students, encouraging youth to reduce their carbon footprint, and fostering a learning environment for activists.
With the launch of this webinar series, we hope to provide attendees a safe haven for learning about the causes of global warming and the impacts of climate change and to highlight the power of one’s voice and the radical changes that can come from taking climate action. Webinar attendees will learn more about the issue of climate change and hear from other youth activists who are taking action during our panel session.
Those who sign up for the last 2 webinars will be entered in a raffle to win a special edition of Alyssa Milano’s novel “Hope” and a special sweet treat from Tony’s Chocolonely Chocolate Company. 15 prize packages will be distributed and shipped out during the virtual event.
Climate change is no longer an issue of the future, but the present day. Every social justice issue is directly impacted by climate change and urgent action must be taken now to reduce global carbon emissions and empower young people to take a stand for their future.
