Generation Z is leading the modern environmental movement. Inspired by our generation's activity in addressing environmental issues on and offline, the ‘Green Gen’ series is created. This is the first introductory episode where your hosts, Nefeli and Julia, talk about how our generation has evolved compared to our parents. Climate change has greatly affected the state of our planet. But also how our generation is trying to change the disastrous consequences of neglecting the environment. Online petitions and lifestyle changes are just a few examples of what we can do to save our planet in a sustainable way. Some of these life choices have been made by their guest, Anna, a UvA law student, to become more environmentally friendly. Do not forget to think critically about your consumption habits!
