Original Text

From the dusty grounds of my native land to the blinding lights of Madrid and Milan, my activism has led me to major climate change events representing the voices of young people demanding change. But every time I hear the climate activists speak on a podium, they would point out how we, young people, are not included in decision making process. Something I noted myself back home in Zimbabwe, where there are more opportunities for young people to join events and speak to important decision makers. Now it is the right time to truly and meaningfully listen to our ideas and include us in these decisions.
