In New Planet Classroom Show 13 Young Leaders from Around the World Share Solutions for Protecting the Planet

NEW YORK, Aug. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Youth represent nearly 25 percent of the world population. The impacts of climate change pose risks that will directly affect them. Creative Visions, in association with Planet Classroom Network, has launched SHINE, an innovative multimedia project that invites youth from around the world to use their creativity and innovations to inspire new ideas that present a more positive future for all. In the new Planet Classroom podcast, Orb, the show's virtual host, invites youth leaders based in Venezuela, Nigeria, Uganda, China, South Korea, Mexico, Paraguay, Colombia, Australia, India and the United States to share their innovations and solutions.

"Environment education needs to become an integral part of mainstream classroom learning," says Priyanka Prakash, Protect Our Planet Youth Mentor and Program Director. "Students need to be inculcated with practical knowledge and encouraged to develop solutions to address climate issues at a personal, local, national and global level." Prachi Shevgaonkar, the Founder of Cool the Globe, advocates for an E-learning platform "which breaks down climate science to citizens, in the context of their day-to-day activities, actions and surroundings "to give people "clarity on their role in the fight against climate change."
