Editorial Reviews

Karla Utting
“The entire film series is beyond fantastic. Through the YVFP films we witness youth taking a stand to fight to save their planet and their future.”

Chris Palmer
“For youth, the films provide an epiphany, allowing them to realize how much power they have to make positive change in the world. Please watch these films and to get motivated to take action on climate change.”

Anthony Leiserowitz
“By finding and giving voice to the “bright spots” – the kids who are leading the charge, not passively waiting for adults to act, who are innovating in their homes, schools, and communities to create a more sustainable and yes, fun world, this project is helping thousands of others – kids and adults – find inspiration and motivation to take action.”
