Manifesto

The planet is giving emergency signals
It's time to respond. //
We think the new normal is to recuperate the environment
To ensure the future we want. //
 But things won't get better on their own. //
Everyone has a role. //
Because the way out of the ecological crisis is collectively. //
And there is hope in the movement we want to create. //
The fight against climate change is for survival. //
If we lose it, there's nothing else to gain. //
When we inspire others, the world changes. //
We are the generation of change. //
