In Greece, two young activists fighting for the environment

Greece is one of the countries most affected by climate change in Europe. From changing ecosystems in the Mediteranean sea to wildfires, its population has seen the effects of global warming first-hand. And some are not willing to sit still.

Anastasia is a young climate defender and low waste activist. She has her own page on Instagram “Act Low Waste” and tries to promote an eco-friendly lifestyle. Agisilaos is a young climate warrior, too. He is part of the Scientist Rebellion collective and has participated in multiple Extinction Rebellion direct actions around Europe. He has gone to COP26 to advocate for the planet and climate justice.
