Global Youth Climate Network Co-Chair
Ekta believes that climate change will be the central challenge faced by the world in the 21st century. The upheavals that will result from the warming of the planet will include mass migration of climate refugees, drought and food insecurity, water shortages, an increase in the severity of natural disasters like hurricanes and floods, and the degradation of non-climate change resilient infrastructure. She believes that it will be the youth of today that will respond to these crises of tomorrow. Thus she advocates for raising awareness of these issues among youth and training the next generation of leaders who will address these ecological challenges.
