Severn Suzuki, at the age of 12 years old, spoke at the Earth Summit in Brazil in 1992. I’ve never seen this video, or heard of her previously, but I received an email recently where someone shared this video with me. Here you can watch the video:

What a brave girl she was at that time, and how brave she is still in championing the cause of environmental protection even now. Sadly, our world hasn’t improved since 1992 but about twenty years on, the world has been hurting even more with each passing day, month and year. What are we going to do about it?
