#2: Disha Ravi on Climate Change, Importance of Climate Education, Activism and More
“Millions of people are affected by the climate crisis every single day but there is no action and I have stopped waiting for any. We, the youth will take action. We will unite and organise for a just and equitable future.” – Disha Ravi
Disha Ravi is one of the founding members of Fridays For Future India. Her story of observing her grandparents who are farmers struggling with the effects of climate change from her early childhood and finally deciding to do something about it actively is truly inspirational.
On today’s episode, we talk about her motivation to join climate activism, the importance of climate education, how activism has transformed in the age of “social distancing” and what is 1.5 and why it matters.
