Between Generations: Listen to the future
TOMORROW is celebrating World’s Children’s Day on Friday, November 20, with a talk between two generations engaged in the climate debate – the artist Olafur Eliasson and 15-year old Selma Montgomery. The two are equally dedicated to the green transition of our society and are using a wide range of tools to make the climate crisis a top priority for everyone.
Eliasson does it through his art – his latest artwork Earth Speakr invites kids to speak up and adults to listen. It offers a unique opportunity for people to join together and be part of a collective artwork aiming to amplify children’s views on the wellbeing of the planet they will inherit.
Montgomery is a leading character in the Danish branch of the global Fridays For Future movement. FFF began in August 2018, after 15-year-old Greta Thunberg and other young activists sat in front of the Swedish parliament every schoolday for three weeks to protest against the lack of action on the climate crisis.
In this TOMORROW TALK Montgomery and Eliasson talk action and how we as a society can and should listen to the future – the young generations.
