Quote from the President
"Governmental leaders and corporations are bequeathing existential climate and environmental risks to the young. Will the youth be able to understand, mobilize, and advocate to mitigate risks and adapt? For this, they need credible scientific and societal understanding, suitable technologies and communication tools."
