“The climate change crisis needs to be a global discussion, and with our global broadcast footprint, we are proud to be able to produce this series to advance these critical issues that impact our planet. I am very excited personally to have deep thought leaders like Ibrahim who has dedicated his wealth and life to the climate initiative and Alexandria – a teen who has been on the street protesting since she was 13, curating this conversation, bridging the generational and perspective gap. We need the full support of both grassroot level activities and billion $ investors,” said Kavita Gupta, Executive Producer & Co-Founder of FINTECH.TV.
“Climate change is a race against time—but it’s not a race that anyone can win alone. The capital and the technology we need already exist, now it is time to strategically put them together. In the last century, finance was able to lift half the human population out of poverty. In this century, the greatest use for finance to play is a defining role in bringing human civilization into harmony with the natural world,” said Ibrahim AlHusseini, venture capitalist, sustainability-focused entrepreneur, and philanthropist.
“The climate crisis will affect every aspect of young people’s lives. Climate change is already harming our health and housing, our education, and our economic opportunities right now. Our future, and the future of the generations that come after us, are in danger from extreme weather, excessive heat, droughts, floods, hurricanes, mass migrations, and geopolitical instability. When youth rally on the streets, we often chant “System Change, Not Climate Change!” because we understand our current sociopolitical and economic systems created this crisis. Now, young people all over the world are taking the lead by challenging the status quo and demanding change. Youth are co-creating the future we need to face the climate emergency. I’m excited to launch The Price of Climate and this series of ground-breaking intergenerational conversations where we explore new futures together!” added Alexandria Villaseñor, 16, Youth Climate Activist and Founder of Earth Uprising International.
