Why? In 2015, leaders from all over the world met in Paris to find common solutions against climate change. Almost five years later, are we as an international community really on course to meet the goals?

Especially during Fridays for Future, young people have taken to the streets to call attention to the severe consequences climate change could have for future generations and demand climate action be taken from world leaders. 

Together, the Nordic Embassies in Berlin invite five prominent, young Nordic voices who dedicate their professional lives to a greener future. How have they managed to get to where they are and how do they make themselves heard in important international fora? They will present their view from the inside on current progress towards meeting the goals in the Paris agreement and will pass on advice on what YOU can do to help secure a more sustainable future.
