Italy hosted the ‘Youth For Climate’ Summit 2021, a pivotal gathering that brought together approximately 400 climate activists from 180 countries in the nation’s financial capital. This three-day summit was designed to formulate recommendations to be forwarded to a significant United Nations climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland, commencing on October 31.

Despite the diverse representation and impassioned pleas from various activists, global media spotlight predominantly lingered on Greta Thunberg. Vanessa Nakate from Uganda poignantly highlighted the paradox of Africa’s minimal CO2 emissions amidst its severe climate change impacts. Archana Soreng from India discussed recent extreme weather events and the perils faced by nature protectors. Ruth Miller from Alaska elucidated on Arctic amplification, where climate change effects are magnified fourfold. Maximo Mazzocco from Argentina underscored the challenges of climate impact restoration due to resource constraints.

Delegates from Hawaii, Romania, Pakistan, Australia, Nepal, the Philippines, and Vanuatu also raised their voices, advocating for attention and action towards climate change issues. These young individuals, representing the future, stand united for a crucial cause and seek the global attention it warrants. The question arises: How should they amplify their voices to garner the attention they deserve?
