Omar Abdi United States

Pourquoi je participe à l'appel des consciences

I care about the climate because I care about the world we leave to our children and grandchildren. Because of climate change, children in developing countries face greater risk of diseases like malaria and cholera, food and water shortages, and disruption to their education. It is a harsh injustice that those who have contributed the least to the problem bear the greatest burden. We must do our part today, by agreeing to take ambitious actions on climate change and embrace a low-carbon lifestyle. We owe it to ourselves and more importantly, we owe it to future generations.
