Young people worldwide are invited to join the conversation with youth in Glasgow, Scotland at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 4 for a peek into perhaps the most important United Nations Climate Conference of our lifetimes! Visit with ETHS senior Lily Aaron, who will be attending the Climate Summit in person as part of It’s Our Future (IOF) a program of Seven Generations Ahead. Aaron and other Chicago-area youth will share what they’re seeing and hearing from world leaders. Youth climate activists from Nigeria, Ireland and elsewhere are also expected to be part of the conversation. This event is co-hosted by IOF youth and youth from the One Earth Film Festival’s Youth Advisory Council.
