Dear friend,

Hi!! My name is Ana and I’m a 16 years old girl from Portugal.

In my country people still don’t realize the huge impact of climate change, which makes this fight a little bit harder. However, we are a country with people that don’t give up. I’ve been trying to explain to my friends and classmates about the importance of this subject, but they think it is a problem for adults. They are wrong. By the time that you are reading this, I’m going to be 30 or 50 years old and I will be an adult. Until then, I will fight for this cause and I will never ever give up because we, the youngsters, are the hope. We are the future. I actually want to graduate in environmental sciences and technologies so I can be an ecologist. But now the only thing I can do is to try to explain to people about our impact on the world and the causes of it. Unfortunately, I cannot be a volunteer because I am not 18 years old yet, so I’m learning everything I can about this issue in order to stay informed and to know how to take action. In my school I am the eco-delegate of my class. They even gave me this nickname “GreenAggressive” because I’m always talking about this issue and because sometimes I get really upset and disappointed with people that make fun of this situation. I hope that by the time you are reading this letter, this problem is resolved or almost resolved. If it isn’t, please don’t lose hope and never give up!

Remember: “words and ideas can change the world”! You have a voice so use it, make yourself heard and start the change! I believe in you.

Lots of love,
Ana, a girl with ideas from 2017
Porto, Portugal
