About this event
All over the world, Youth came on the streets to fight for our planet. Also Indigenous People have been warning against climate change since decades.
What wisdom will arise when these two perspectives meet? What is Angaangaq’s message to Simon Sterck, and vice versa? What are their hopes and fears? How can the way Indigenous people connect with nature inspire young climate activists here in Leuven, and in Europe?
Simon Sterck (2004, Leuven, Belgium) finished high school last year at the Paridaens Institute and is currently studying Law at the KU Leuven. Since he was a child he was interested in what was going on in the world and developed his passion for the environment and society. Today, Simon is involved in several projects around climate. He is a co-initiator of Youth for Climate Leuven and he is European Climate Pact Ambassador for the European Commission. Simon is the youngest director at the non-profit Leuven 2030. With his youthful and positive energy, he wants to contribute to a better world and make a difference in handling the climate crisis.
Moderator is Chris Hoerée of EarthWays, an organization that focuses on sustainability and nature connection. EarthWays hosted Angaangaq in Leuven in 2019.
