Speaking on Behalf of Children by Severn Cullis-Suzuki Static Preview

Raised in Vancouver and Toronto, Severn Cullis-Suzuki has been camping and hiking all her life. When she was 9 she started the Environmental Children's Organization (ECO), a small group of children committed to learning and teaching other kids about environmental issues. They were successful in many projects before 1992, when they raised enough money to go to the UN's Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. Their aim was to remind the decision-makers of who their actions or inactions would ultimately affect. The goal was reached when 12 yr old Severn closed a 1992 Plenary Session with a powerful speech that received a standing ovation.

Here she is again nearly twenty years later addressing our understanding or lack thereof about our environment.
