Young Climate Activist Vox Pops

Meet young climate activists living in Hungary, Czech Republic and Australia through this 18 minute vox pop compilation. To find out more about how climate activism differs in different parts of the world, these climate activists asked each other three questions:

1. Who are you and why have you become an activist?

2. What is unique about FFF demands in your country?

3. How have you developed during your time spent in the climate movement. 

Their responses form a local and global dialogue about changing power dynamics, addressing government inaction and countering scepticism of older generations towards climate change.
