    Politicians take note: The current crop of young climate change activists could signal the emergence of a generation of politically involved youth not seen since the 1960s. And research shows the younger people become civically engaged, the more likely they are to stay engaged in activism and politics for their entire lives, potentially creating a generation of change…Generation Z, mostly still under 18, is not only demographically large but increasingly worried about the threat climate change poses to its future. The group has spawned a host of climate change activists and protests globally, including the Sunrise Movement, Zero Hour, Youth for Climate and #FridaysForFuture demonstrations…[The global youth climate movement is growing and research] shows that when children become concerned about global warming, their parents start to care more too…

    …[The response] to 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, who started the School Strike for Climate, has been massive…[and] the Sunrise Movement’s occupation of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s office and push for stronger climate change action has sparked tremendous interest among Democrats…[Generally, policy change becomes more likely] if between 5% and 7% of a population become active…Whether this activism will be maintained as this generation grows older is still very much in question…[But many say Gen Z] is fighting for their lives…” click here for more
