Chloe Bento Monteiro believes in the power of young people to ignite change.

“I’m extremely passionate about climate change because that’s the issue that is going to affect us the most as a generation. I think that because the cause has been largely taken up by young people, we’re not being taken very seriously, but the truth is that kids are the only ones sounding the alarm about the climate crisis. We know the problem isn’t going away in our lifetimes, so we want to be the generation that changes things.”
