In 1992 Severn Cullis-Suzuki (David Suzukiâ€™s daughter) who was 12 years old gave a talk to the UNâ€™s Earth Summit in Rio on behalf of ECO (( The Environmental Childrens Organisation )). She gave a really good talk, see the below Youtube video. The best quote is â€œIf you donâ€™t know how to fix it, please stop breaking it!â€. Unfortunately they havenâ€™t stopped breaking things yet.
You can read a transcript at the Melbourne Schools for a Sustainable Future website.
Fifteen years on it is still a powerful and (sadly) relevant speech.
