For this episode I interviewed Jamie Margolin, activist and founder of Zero Hour, an organization that unites youth activists that are concerned about the lack of action being done by officials around the world regarding climate change. There is a crisis happening, but no action is being taken. Zero Hour is an international organization with the goal to educate people about the climate crisis and get more people involved in activism and since it was launched in 2017 when Jamie was only 15 years old, Zero Hour has reached people far and wide around the world. During this interview Jamie discusses her inspiration to get into advocacy, what her movement is all about and her mindset and daily activities as one of the most influential activists of today.
Jamie has testified in front of Congress alongside other young climate change activists, including Greta Thunberg. She has also been features on BBC’s list of 100 most inspiring and influential women from around the world for 2019.
