Thomson Reuters, the world’s leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, has launched a new section on its Sustainability website that is devoted to voices and perspectives from youth around the globe on creating a more sustainable path for the future. Hot Stuff Climate Net contributes with regular contributions from our wide and locally attached network.
Youth Perspectives on Sustainability (http://sustainability.thomsonreuters.com/youth-perspective/), launched as part of Earth Week 2013, draws together essays and videos written and produced by young people from dozens of different countries, discussing what the issue of sustainability means to them and their communities, as well as efforts they are personally undertaking to promote awareness and greater sustainability. Topics range from tips from students on how individuals can help reduce global warming to letters from Kenyan students to their government expressing the urgency of addressing climate change.
“Sustainability is about meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs,” said Stephane Bello, Chief Financial Officer, Thomson Reuters. “Sustainability from Thomson Reuters gives fresh voice to the current issues relating to this basic problem of preservation. It’s absolutely critical that the next generation should have their voice through the site.”
Hot Stuff Climate Net and myclimate are partners for the „Youth Perspectives“ page on Thomson Reuters Sustainability. We are proud to cooperate in this global and high-profile network to reach a more sustainable future.
