How helping young people find their voices can build trust

How can we help young people find their voices through activism and collaboration? And why is this an important element of education?

In this episode, Nina explores the many benefits that come from supporting youth activism – from building leadership skills to promoting empathy. 

While each guest has a different international perspective – they are based in India, Canada and Trinidad – all three work collaboratively with schools and students at a local, regional and international level to support young people in their mission to build a more sustainable future.
