Encouraging Early Activism in your Kids
Show Notes

I was a youth and adult activist, and am encouraging my kids to be youth activists as well. I fully believe youth activism is essential to raising adult activists and for future generations to make positive changes in our world. That’s why episode 29 of This Green Planet is about youth activism!

In this episode of This Green Planet, I’m sharing the importance of youth activism and actionable steps you can take right now to encourage your kids to be activists. 

I cover some of the following topics: 

  • The power and desire that our youth have to change the world, and how this has been proven true
  • How activism now will position our youth for future leadership positions as adults
  • How activism fuels passion and purpose that then instills ethics that take them into adulthood
  • How youth activism changes the minds of adults who listen

It’s important that we don’t underestimate the power children have to change the world. Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on sustainable, STEM business practices and to hear even more about the points outlined above.

Thank you for listening!
