Kinder der Klimakrise

4 Mädchen, 3 Kontinente, 1 Mission

4 girls, 1 mission: fight against global environmental disasters. Water scarcity, burning of coal, air pollution and the littering of our planet with plastic are told from their perspective. The 11- to 14-year-old girls from India, Australia, Indonesia and Senegal face existential threats. At a time when solutions are often portrayed as highly complex and almost impossible to implement, these children stand up for their future with unmasking clarity.
