Huffington Post Features Young Voices on Climate Change

Cintia Cabib, the film production and outreach coordinator at Young Voices on Climate Change, has written a blog post about the Young Voices for the Planet film series for the Huffington Post.  Cintia writes that the positive environmental stories in the films "present a stark contrast to the recent grim reports on the worldwide effects of global warming issued by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change."  Read how producer Lynne Cherry's documentaries act as an antidote to fear and overcome "motivated avoidance."  Please share the article on Facebook and Twitter!
