“I find myself really passionate when it comes to our planet, and I believe it’s a passion everyone should develop. I discovered this passion when I came across an article that really scared me, saying we’re facing mass extinction come 2050,” Jack shares. “And so considering today’s context, I believe it’s high time that we realize the importance of responsible consumption and production and why it’s a crucial step towards climate action.”
