With Climate Cardinals, an international youth-led nonprofit that’s working to make the climate movement more accessible, activist and social entrepreneur Sophia Kianni is furthering the global transfer of knowledge by translating and sourcing crucial climate resources into more than 100 languages. A barrier-breaking talk about the collective effort we’ll need to protect the future of our planet.
