Stories of TRUST: Calling for Climate Recovery

6 mins


Seventeen-year old activist Alec Loorz takes on the U.S. government. In an unprecedented legal filing, Loorz and youth from across that country that are members of iMatter — the climate group he founded — sued the U.S. government, calling upon the courts to put in place "Climate Recovery Plans" that will protect the atmosphere for future generations. Produced by WITNESS, Montana State University's MFA in Science and Natural History Filmmaking, Our Children's Trust and Kids v. Global Warming, the hope is that seeing and hearing from those who will be most affected by the fallout from climate change will inspire others to fight for justice. “Young people aren’t always heard,” Loorz says — but he’s trying to change that.
