Climate Stories from Young People



Talking about your personal experience with climate change is one of the most powerful ways to grow the climate movement, according to young people at the forefront of the movement. In this week's episode, I spoke with Abby Kleiman, a Junior at Barnard College and a leader of her school's chapter of the Sunrise Movement. Abby tells me why climate story telling is so important and how she thinks that adults (yes, you!) can support the youth climate movement. We also hear climate stories from two young women based in Costa Rica and the United States.
Share your climate story with us! We would love to hear them and feature them on future episodes of the podcast. You can email us a recording or write us a letter and send to
