It’s Only Teenage Wasteland - Teaching Youth to Avoid Ecological Disaster with Green Teen Team
How to engage teenagers in the conservation movement.
Growing up amidst a pandemic, changing climate, mass extinction, and a scourge of pollution isn't easy. Teens today are faced with the monumental task of helping to shape a sustainable future, with the constant reminder of global tragedies weighing heavy on their minds. On this episode of Shaped By The Sea, host Brian Yurasits explores how teens across the globe are stepping up to the plate to address our planet's most important issues with Ellie Crisp, the Director of Green Teen Team. Ellie joins us from across the pond in Italy, sharing her experiences as an educator and insight into empowering teens to become champions of conservation. We discuss the flaws of education systems, why students shouldn't be afraid to pursue their dreams, and how we must address global problems with local solutions.
