The statement by the former Italian Ministry of Environment Sergio Costa
“The future of the planet is a challenge that mainly concerns young people, who in recent years have been standard-bearers in the battle for the fight against global warming and for environmental sustainability. From them came the strongest and most constructive stimuli for world leaderships. We intend to give them a voice, prominence and visibility in view of the Milan climate conference at the end of 2021. We believe it is fundamental that the choices concerning tomorrow are shared, even expressed, by those who will have to live in tomorrow and will be responsible for the planet of tomorrow”.
