When Teens Save The Planet - Cindy Chung

We’ve seen them grab headlines. They’re on the streets, calling out world leaders and organizations that have failed to protect our environment. They’re teenagers like 16 year old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg or the 21 young people from Portland, Oregon who are demanding their government to step up and protect children and future generations from the effects of climate change.

In this episode, we’re sharing the story of an inspiring young leader — Cindy Chung, a teen climate activist and the co-head of youth-led movement Zero Hour NYC.

Daughter of immigrant parents from South Korea, Cindy would remind family members to put used plastic bottles in the recycling bin when she was much younger. These days, she spends her spare time lobbying for policies that would enable her city of Bayonne, New Jersey to react effectively to the climate crisis. Surrounded by other unwearied, impassioned teen activists, no one can stop Cindy from fighting for her future.
