Mary Harm, a young Chinese Fijian woman, believes that young people's voices need to be heard loud and clear. She thinks that we should focus on amplifying the stories and experiences of Indigenous youth, especially when it comes to the impact of climate change on their lives and communities. By sharing their narratives in new and innovative ways, we can raise awareness and inspire action. Ultimately, this will lead to a more sustainable future for everyone.
