The Blue Zone:
Where youth speaks out on climate change
Climate change affects the world — but rarely does the world come together to solve environmental problems.
Global Student Square correspondents in Paris, Bali, Barcelona and South Korea came together to produce this package of stories on the landmark COP21 climate change conference in Paris and environmental issues where they live.
As our editorial says:
“Just as the coverage of COP21 is impossible for any one team to do alone, climate change is an issue that commands the collaboration of individuals from all over the world, many who are strangers to one another, and many split by class and political divides, but all united in the hope of a more sustainable way of life.”
Editorial: Thank you, Green School Bali
Collaboration is key for fighting climate change, a lesson we learned as student journalists.
