ICYMI: last week we had three amazing young leaders from Zero Hour on the show to talk about the Youth Climate March that took place this past Saturday in cities around the world. Our Think 100% team was on the ground at the event on the National Mall in D.C. and truly moved by the energy and focus of the thousands of young people stepping up for just solutions to climate change. This weekend was more than a moment; it was the beginning of a movement. We can’t wait to see what’s next from our friends and urge everyone to check out some of their powerful words on the show last week (1. bearing the burden, 2. paradigm shifting, 3. we can’t live in the moment if we’re worried about life and death).

Episode 17: “Zero Hour is Here: Young People Fighting for a Future” [July 17, 2018]

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.0.47″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat” _i=”0″ _address=”0.0″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.83″ text_font=”Barlow||||||||” text_font_size=”22px” text_letter_spacing=”2px” text_line_height=”1.6em” header_font=”Barlow||||||||” header_letter_spacing=”1px” header_line_height=”1.6em” header_5_font=”Barlow||||||||” header_5_font_size=”22px”]

This week, we’ll be joined by three of the founding members of Zero Hour, a powerful youth-led climate organization. They, like us, are fed up with the inaction by so many of the leaders in our country, including our current President. They know how critical it is to act now on the most pressing issue of our time, and they want to do it right. #ThisIsZeroHour

Rev. Yearwood and Dr. Mustafa Santiago Ali will be sitting down with Zero Hour founder and president Jamie Margolin, founding member and art director Nadia Nazar, and founding member and director of fundraising Madelaine Tew, to discuss their role in the movement, the means by which they want to make change, and how EVERYONE can engage this week.

 

Jamie Margolin is the founder and president of Zero Hour, as well as a Climate Justice Ambassador with Plant for the Planet and the founder of an environmental lobbying group in Washington. Her involvement with environmental activism has been dedicated and headline-worthy, including her ongoing lawsuit with the Washington government over climate change. At sixteen years old, she has accomplished a great deal and continues to push to make her and other young activists’ voices heard. 

Nadia Nazar is a founding member and Art Director & Co-Partnerships Lead for Zero Hour.  She is conscious of the fact that climate change is killing the environment and the souls that it consists of and is doing everything in her power to combat this from happening.  As a sixteen-year-old, Nadia is taking the step herself to ensure a better future instead of waiting for policy makers to take action. 


Madelaine Tew is a founding member and Director of Fundraising of Zero Hour. She is a strong proponent of youth leadership, and believes passionately in action quickly to combat climate change. At Zero Hour, she works towards ensuring concrete change and wide involvement in the climate movement.
