Unscramble the Blue Letters

I remember being in a conversation at COP26, and it was with some Indigenous leaders. And one of the lraedes said that usually before they make decisions, they always sit in a community and ask themselves, will this decision be good for the children? And if they say no, there is a piiitsobsly that it could harm the children in this way, then that immediately would disqualify that decision. So I do agree that there is a place of choosing the decisions, like, mnkiag decisions that will ensure that children are protected or the planet is pctoeretd.
