Helen Watts of Student Energy Works to Establish Youth Voices in Climate Decisions

In Climate, energy, Publisher Channel, womensempowerment, Youth by Blessing Enofe

Helen Watts is at the heart of what the Student Energy organization (and some would say movement) is all about. Her ball-of-fire enthusiasm and forward momentum toward being the voice on the platform – the decision-maker at the table is contagious. She knows the place for youth and the critical position the entire world is in if inclusion for purpose isn’t embraced.

Inequity is an issue faced by youth and maybe even more so in some places where youth is the second strike against you if you are also female. This lively conversation hosted by Frontrunners Development President, Mary Kurek, along with Co-Host and Youth Climate Advocate, Aditi Banerjee, revealed details of the work of Student Energy and how anyone can get involved. Thanks also to Business Development Assistant, Margaret Nabagenyi, for joining the conversation.
