The Problem

We're making a podcast to education kids on climate change and talk about climate solutions that kids/families can take. Here’s what you can expect on each episode. First, Zach will introduce the episode. Next, his friend Waldo will pop in for a little weather lesson, if you will. Then, we will invite a climate expert for an interview. Zach will also host a rousing game of climate trivia and finally learn about a local organization or business that is working toward climate solutions.

Our Plan

We are making a podcast called We The Children, about climate solutions. Below is the introduction in every episode: Hello, my name is Zachary J Fox-DeVol. I am ten years old and I live in Los Angeles, California. The climate is changing. We are nearing a tipping point, a place from which we can not turn back, and we are racing towards it at record speeds. We, the children, are being punished for what our ancestors have done to the world, and to us. Generations of policy makers and big corporations have made billions at our, and the planet’s expense, and have escaped consequence. Until now. As our futures are resting upon our shoulders, the shoulders of kids like me, some adults don’t even believe in climate change. I am tired. I am frustrated. I am angry. Some days, it feels like no one cares. That\'s why I will put aside my own time, when I could be playing with friends, to record this podcast. We need to face the facts. Here, on We The Children, we will be tackling hard topics, learning about different climate phenomena, and speaking with experts and leaders in the field of global warming solutions. I may not have all the answers, or be able to solve the worlds’ problems, but I know I have to try. And I’m glad you’re here to help.
