Liz Koslov in Daily Bruin: Youth and social media fuel movement demanding action to fight climate change
Organizations like the Environmentalists of Color Collective at UCLA have been working to oppose and solve environmental issues long before the strikes. Liz Koslov, an assistant professor of urban planning and environment and sustainability at UCLA, said the collective action and organizing of the recent climate strikes is necessary to achieve the societal transformation that climate change demands.
“What gives me hope is seeing this level of organizing and mobilization from these younger individuals,” Koslov said. “Simply being aware is not enough to create change.”
