Interview with Felix Finkbeiner on Kids Taking Action, Climate Justice and Saving the World One Tree at a Time
Jul 26 2017
This week on "Rebel Hearts": Kristie talks with Felix Finkbeiner (age 19), climate justice ambassador, tree planter, university student and founder of the youth initiative "Plant-for-the-Planet". At the age of 13, Felix spoke at the United Nations and he has received many awards for his environmental work. "Plant-for-the-Planet" has planted 14 billion trees as of now, and their next goal is to plant 1 trillion tress worldwide in order to counter the effects of climate change.
Felix was 9 years old when he did a report on climate change for school. During his research, he became inspired by the story of the renowned Kenyan environmental activist and Nobel laureate Wangari Maathai, and he developed the idea that children could promote climate justice by planting a million trees in every country. With the support of children from over 100 countries, Felix launched the children and youth initiative "Plant-for-the-Planet" in 2007 (he was nine years old at that time) which has planted 14 billion tress as of now.
Felix shares how "Plant-for-the-Planet" got started and how it sparked into a global movement, nowadays having more than 100,000 active members, all of them being children. He talks about what inspires him, what motivates him, the support structures to do what he is doing and speaks on the importance of people coming together to create change. He also talks about the necessity of taking action now and the organization's campaign "Stop talking, start planting."
He shares about the "Plant-for-the-Planet Academies" where over 63,000 children and youth in 58 countries have been trained to become climate justice ambassadors; besides organizing tree planting actions, these children and youth give speeches to adults and pressure them to act and fight for their future. On top of it, the organization has hired scientists for their research, created tree planing projects in Mexico that provides jobs for the locals and is producing their own fair trade chocolate.
Felix inspires us to stop procrastinating and to start taking action now!
