By Janet Wilson
From climate action to cyberbullying, from gun violence to animal protection, these young activists have brought about real change.
These young people from across the globe are raising awareness about what issues matter to them most. Jaelun Parkerson from Texas kneels with his football teammates during the National Anthem to protest racial injustice; Canadian Autumn Peltier spoke in front of the United Nations to raise awareness about water pollution; and Melati Wijsen from Bali started working at twelve-years-old to convince his government to ban plastic bags.
From oil pipelines to cyber bullying, from gun violence to animal protection, they don’t let their youth stop them from being heard.
