“One of many, we rise to proclaim: we are not a single story.”
Ahmed M. Badr composed this original poem in response to messages and stories of climate action gathered by Connect4Climate (C4C) at the Youth4Climate summit in Milan. C4C then partnered with Little Amal, an 11-foot puppet representing a refugee girl, who brought these voices of youth climate leaders with her to Glasgow for COP26. Many of these Youth4Climate champions joined her at COP to present the Youth4Climate Manifesto to leaders and call for urgent climate action rooted in climate justice.
