Carlota Mateos: Hotels should be part of the solution

At the age of 19, Carlota created a company for hotels oriented towards sustainability in rural Spain. The fact that people live and work in rural areas means fewer fires, prevents desertification and protects water resources among many other valuable benefits. That is why generating economies in rural areas that are not intensive agro-industrial activities is so important, she says. (Subtitles by Nilo Ramos)

Diego Fernández: The climate crisis is happening now

Diego Fernández is 21 years old and lives in Madrid. The year 2019 was the time he became aware that he had to do more than recycle. With the climate mobilizations taking place around the world and the “Greta Thunberg boom”, he understood that climate change was something really important that was personally going to affect him and his future. Therefore he got involved in climate activism by joining the youth organization Juventud x el Clima.
