Hear the Voice of Future Generations!
As an official partner of LiveEarth, the World Future Council successfully launched its KidsCall campaign live on stage at LiveEarth Hamburg.
Over one hundred children presented WFC Chair Bianca Jagger with their letters and pictures addressed to the world’s political leaders, voicing their concerns over climate change.
Over the course of the next year, the World Future Council will collect many more such letters and pictures urging G8 leaders to live up to their responsibilities and act now to protect the climate and life on earth.
The WFC will exhibit these letters in parliaments around the world before presenting them directly to the world’s political leaders at the G8 summit on 07.07.08 in Japan!
Add Your Voice!
Children and teenagers have a completely free hand when it comes to the content and design of their messages and appeals. The theme is Save Life on Earth and they can choose to concentrate on protecting the climate, preserving the rainforest, preventing the melting of the polar ice caps or safe-guarding life in the ocean, or another subject if they so wish.
More information, interactive communication and downloadable teaching materials are available on the campaign website.
Children should send their letters and illustrations to:
P.O. Box 11 17 11
Here’s an amazing video showing a speech/plea by a 12 yr old. She is the spokesperson of a group called ECO (Environmental Children’s Organisation) of 12 and 13 year olds. Her words, concerns & the examples she gives are amazing!
