12 years old

It was in 1992, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, during the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), also known as Earth Summit, a meeting held to discuss issues about the environment and global conscience and development (as the name may hint). There, Severn Suzuki, at that time with 12 years old, presented the speech bellow.

She won’t say something you never heard before, since all these matters are much more spread today, for many reasons. However, I think you should watch to see her courage, to see the reaction of the people listen what she was saying, and about all to see that despite it all happened almost 20 years ago, the side of the story which needs to change, perhaps haven’t changed at all.
