Hey Dream Tank community! We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our new EmpowerGen column, where we shine a spotlight on the incredible ideas and initiatives of Gen Z. Each week, we’ll explore the innovative ways young people are taking action to combat climate change and create a sustainable future.
In this week’s EmpowerGen column, our amazing contributor Summer Cuppari Gould shares her insights on the critical role that Gen Z plays in climate action.
She dives into the passion, determination, and emotional burden that Gen Zers carry as they fight for a better world.
Summer highlights the fact that Gen Z and millennials are more concerned about climate action than any previous generation. Their engagement with the issue goes beyond mere conversations; they’re taking real action. According to Pew Research Center, a significant percentage of Gen Zers have donated money, contacted elected officials, volunteered, or attended rallies to address climate change in the last year. Their passion and drive to make a difference are truly inspiring.
The article also delves into the impact of social media, particularly TikTok, in raising awareness about climate change. Summer discusses how countless young people are using this platform to advocate for change and spark meaningful discussions. It’s incredible to witness the power of a 60-second video in inspiring a movement.
Summer shares her personal experiences, discussing the mixed responses she receives when talking to adults about climate change. While some adults are actively engaged and supportive, others dismiss the issue or change the subject. This highlights the importance of collective action and the need for everyone, regardless of age, to come together and address this global challenge.
We’re excited to invite other teens and young adults to join our EmpowerGen column and have their voices heard. If you’re passionate about climate action and want to share your ideas, initiatives, or experiences, we encourage you to apply and become part of our community. Together, we can make a real difference and create a brighter future for all.
Don’t forget to read Summer’s insightful article and share it with a young person in your life. Let’s amplify the voices of Gen Z and inspire others to take action!
