The Green Youth Crew
We are students from Turgot school, volunteers and Youth Ambassadors for UNICEF France.
The Turgot Crew
We chose the name “Les Écolos” because we think that ecology is important and that we should watch out for it. We think that tracking the issues related to climate change is necessary because the consequences linked to a climate imbalance are considerable, more and more dangerous and harmful to our health and that of generations to come. As citizens, we should find a solution to this problem as soon as possible, keeping in mind the idea of mapping progress, as this is an innovative idea that we came up with.
We are “The Ecological Crew”, students at the Turgot school in Paris. We chose this name because our project tackles the issue of pollution and of ecology. We think that tracking the issues related to climate change is important because it seems important to be aware of the environmental problems that happen near us.
We are the “climate changers”, and have decided on this name because it clearly and directly expresses the indirect aim of the whole project. We think that tracking the issues related to climate change is important because this, beyond sharing with the rest of the world, is used to assess and illustrate the words related to this subject which, for many, are often unclear.
We are “Les Trash”, students at the Turgot school in Paris. We have chosen this name because it’s a sort of comparison with the fact that we are “throwing nature in the bin”, as in reality we are part of nature and we are not in charge. We think that tracking the issues related to climate change is important because it’s an intergenerational issue.
The Green Ambassadors
“The French Fries”
Last may, during the French delegation at the J7 summit in Berlin, the others nicknamed us “the French fries”. The name stuck and now it reminds us of our unforgettable shared history, which is why it is our group name.
We are the change-makers. Three 17-year-old girls, Emma, Lisa and Lydia, who live near Paris. We believe that we have the power to change the future and we want to use this power to improve tomorrow’s world. Everyone has power – it’s just a matter of using it, and that’s what we have decided to do. We are ready to fight for a better future – leave it to us, the Change-Makers!
Climatic conditions of the country
In France, like in most countries, several sectors are affected by climate change.
The first is sanitary, with heat waves but also new diseases that come from southern countries, or respiratory diseases that are developing due to the high concentration of CO2 in the air, especially in summertime.
The second issue affected by this change is biodiversity, which causes more and more species to become extinct. Furthermore, agricultural areas such as vineyards can develop diseases and thus affect both yields and consumers.
Floods and coastal erosion also particularly threaten France.
