Swiss youth activist sets sights on New York UN climate summit

18 September 2019

The UN’s first Youth Climate Summit takes place in New York this Saturday where participants will include hundreds of young advocates from around the world.

One of them is 23-year-old Marie-Claire Graf from Switzerland, where  her “Sustainability Week” initiative aims to turn universities into sustainable role-models.

In an interview with UN News’s Daniel Johnson in Geneva, Ms. Graf explained how she hoped to encourage others to do the same to tackle the climate “crisis”.
