12 åring med ett budskap

Youtube är verkligen en skattkista fylld med roliga klipp: femlingar som skrattar, fans som gråter eller folk som skriker roliga saker som Backarå eller Vem vare som kasta?

Men ibland hittar man ett klipp som gör att man bara sitter helt tyst och förundras över vilka fantastiska människor det finns i den här världen. Som den här 12-åriga tjejen som framför ett viktigt budskap på FN:s miljömöte i Rio de Janeiro 1992

Severn Cullis-Suzuki has been camping and hiking all her life. When she was 9 she started the Environmental Children’s Organization (ECO), a small group of children committed to learning and teaching other kids about environmental issues. They were successful in many projects before 1992, when they raised enough money to go to the UN’s Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. Their aim was to remind the decision-makers of who their actions or inactions would ultimately affect. The goal was reached when 12 yr old Severn closed a Plenary Session with a powerful speech that received a standing ovation.
