Earth Guardians: Responding to Global Crisis

0

Since he was a kid, indigenous environmental activist Xiuhtezcatl Martinez understood that all life is sacred and “each and every one of us is deeply connected not only to each other but to the world around us.” At 6 years old, he saw Leonardo DiCaprio’s documentary “The 11th Hour” and recognized that climate change is happening and that he has to do more. Now a teenager, Xiuthezcatl is the Youth Director of Earth Guardians, inspiring youth to understand their role as caretakers of the Earth. Earth Guardians stand up for the Earth, Water, Air, and Atmosphere so that current generations and those that follow will inherit a healthy and habitable planet. Now Earth Guardian crews are on 6 different continents and creating real change, including lawsuits demanding climate recovery plans, acting as part of Generation RYSE.
