“Youth voices carry powerful and necessary wisdom,” says H.E. Karin Olofsdotter, Ambassador of Sweden to the United States. “We are proud to support the inclusion of these voices at COP27 through climate storytelling that celebrates our relationships to land. Through these stories, We Hear You—A Climate Archive is nurturing connections across the arts and sciences. We need these kinds of global collaborations to find solutions to the climate challenges we face.”
