A generation who will bear the consequences of what today’s leaders do (or rather not do) – our generation and the ones coming after.Brittany Trilford is just an ordinary girl, a school girl from New Zealand. But she’s going to represent all the other ordinarly girls and boys at the Rio +20 summit. Brittany is the winner of the Date with History speech contest. Date with History is “an opportunity for young people from around the globe to inspire leaders and decision-makers to act boldly and urgently on key issues impacting the future of our planet. People age 13 to 30 uploaded video speeches telling the world about the ‘future we want.’”
You can watch Brittany’s submission here:
“I want leaders who lead”, she says courageously. Let’s hope the leaders will listen to her in Rio because she’s right: we’d like a future, that’s for sure and we also want a voice in how that future will look like.
