What a way to kick start season 2 of Our New World! A Future Leader if there ever was one.
Hannah Testa is 19. Hannah Testa is already an activist, public speaker, and author. She began her journey at the age of 10, and sheds light on how you can get involved in environmental work from any age.
We talk about how to turn ideas into actions, what gives her the confidence and motivation to keep going despite people looking down on her age, and also how she stays grounded when the environmental work feels heavy and a bit doomsday, as it often does at the moment, and I’m thinking a lot about the more common occurrence of heat waves and drought. Hannah embodies everything brilliant about what youth brings to the table on environmental activism, and with people like her continuing to push in areas like education and policy, it gives a real hope to how we can tackle future global issues.The views and opinions expressed through the MAHB Website are those of the contributing authors and do not necessarily reflect an official position of the MAHB.
