iMatter was created to reach across regional, ideological, and ethnic borders, to empower youth to organize, and be heard on the issue of global climate change. It is a youth-led organization advocating for real solutions to climage change. iMatter is a project of Kids vs. Global Warming (KvGW) which is partnering with Our Children’s Trust (OCT), WITNESS and students from Montana State University’s MFA in Science and Natural History Filmmaking to co-produce a series highlighting how climate change is affecting the everyday lives of kids.
The most basic role of a government is to protect its citizens from dangers too large and complex for individuals to deal with on their own. Global warming is just such a danger. Any legitimate government has a duty to protect the air, the water, and all the other natural systems that sustain its people. Everyone has a right to a livable environment -- the young and the old, the powerful and the voiceless, present generations and those not yet born -- but runaway climate change threatens us all.
