I think I will hear a girl’s speech about the environment.

In 1992, 12-year-old Canadian Severn Suzuki spoke at the Earth Summit in Rio with eloquence and passion in front of world leaders. Now known as “The Girl Who Silenced the World for 6 Minutes”, the video clip of the speech is still making rounds on YouTube, continuing to inspire youth all over the world.

I think this girl is going to speak about Global Warming.

She looks young. She is in front of United Nations representatives / leaders. She must feel stressed but she is strong-minded. She is 12 years old. It takes place in Rio in South America in 1992 for the Earth Summit of the United Nations. Her speech is on YouTube so many people can watch it and become aware of Global Warming.

    If we look at the picture on the top of the question, we can see “united nations conference on environment and development” and a lot of people sit. I think that these people will speak about the environment ( ice melting, animals,…) and development ( child labour, countries in war,…) and I expect that the outcome will be the same as for all others conferences ( people here will just speak, argue, but not take any action )


  2. Hello, i’m Tuän, from the 2°K. I don’t know how to send you the work about Severn Suzuki, but I’ve do it, so, i’m very dissapointed :/
