An Urgent Message From Your Children (at WeYourChildren.org) is a Public Service Video Series featuring children speaking in their own words to adults, expressing their fears, concerns and their hopes for the future of our planet, and making an appeal to all of us to respond with appropriate urgency.
An Urgent Message From Your Children is a project of We, The World for the WE Campaign, in association with The Laughing Willow Company, Inc. and Endelclock, Inc., with participation and support by other organizations including Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots.
We are working with children under 13 years old to start. The focus for the first video series is the Environment: Climate Change, Species Extinction, Pollution, etc. We believe that young children are perfectly suited to deliver this compelling message to adults, especially those who have the power to change society's direction for a Livable Future. After producing the first video ourselves, we have opened it up for children around the world to create and share their own videos.
We would like to spark a global children's movement that gets attention and helps to create major change. Imagine 10,000 children posting videos, sharing them with friends and family and sending them to each member of Congress, the President, Corporate CEOs, Bankers, Hedge Fund Managers, Oil Company Execs, Major Media Outlets, all the UN Heads of State, and others!
