Hmm: UN and Indonesian tourism organizations team up with the German government to urge Indonesian children to lobby tourism leaders to take climate change seriously?

Indonesia’s children asking for strong action against climate change
School kids from Pangandaran, Indonesia, have urged global tourism leaders to take climate change seriously. The 451 participants of the Mangrove Ambassadors Program voiced out through a selection of 24 “Letters to Leaders” how climate change is affecting their daily lives at one of the most popular tourism destinations in Indonesia. The Ambassadors Program is part of a joint project by the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, supported by the government of Germany, to promote climate change mitigation and adaptation measures.
