South Korean Greenpeace climate leader urges young people to keep standing up for climate justice in Net Zero interview


Studies have shown that young people can raise older generations’ level of concern about critical global issues. Parents and government leaders are paying more attention to what their children think about the world’s most pressing issue: climate change. Climate change has spawned a generation of young activists, and South Korean youth are no different. In the latest Net Zero production, young climate activist Cherry Sung interviews Greenpeace climate and energy activist Justin Jeong, who runs a climate suffrage project to ensure the South Korean government responds quickly to the climate crisis. How important is the role of young people in raising awareness for the South Korean Green New Deal to materialize?

“Future generations will be more affected by the greenhouse gases emitted by older generations,” Jeong says. Greenpeace works in solidarity with young people and youth groups. The more the young people, the victims, raise their voices, the more the older generation, the perpetrators, will feel responsible.
