Greenpeace’s South Korean Climate Leader Inspires Youth to Continue to Rise up for Climate Justice in Net Zero Interview
New Net Zero show features Justin Jeong, Climate & Energy Campaigner, Greenpeace Seoul, who encourages youth (the victims) to rise up and make the older generation (the perpetrators) feel responsible.
NEW YORK, Oct. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Studies have shown that youth can increase the older generations’ level of concern about critical global issues. Parents and government leaders are paying more attention to what their children think about the world’s most pressing issue – climate change. Climate change spawned a generation of youth activists, and South Korean youth are no different. In the latest Net Zero production, Youth Climate Activist Cherry Sung interviews Greenpeace’s Climate and Energy Campaigner Justin Jeong, who is leading a climate suffrage project to ensure the South Korean government responds rapidly to the climate crisis. How important is the role of youth in raising awareness to get South Korea’s Green New Deal realized?
“Future generations will be more affected by the greenhouse gasses emitted by the older generations,” states Jeong. Greenpeace has been working in solidarity with youth and youth groups. The more youth, the victims, raise their voices, the more the older generation, the perpetrators, will feel responsible.”
