Activist Jovanna has to take the climate into consideration in whatever she wants to do. She doesn’t eat meat, and she and her family live in an “earthship,” where they generate all the energy they use. How can she use her voice for climate change?
Like thousands of young people around the world, she was inspired by climate activist Greta Thunberg. Children can’t vote, so going on strike is the only way to make their voices heard. There are brief appearances from young bloggers from Australia, Curaçao and Japan, who all believe that something has to change. After summer vacation Jovanna is going to high school, and she won’t be allowed to strike anymore. So when will the grownups finally start doing something?
