Young Voices for the Planet These eight inspiring short films document youth taking action against climate change. In Plant for the Planet, Felix, an 11-year-old German boy plants 3 million trees through his viral website. Team Marine students’ testify before their city council and ban plastic bags. The middle school girls in Dreaming in Green conduct an energy audit saving their school $53,000. 11-year-old Olivia’s bird paintings raise $200,00 to rescue oiled birds after the BP spill and she lobbies congress for renewable energy. These earnest and endearing youth give us hope and inspiration.
