Little Amal, a 3.5 metre puppet of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee, has completed The Walk. All along her epic 8000km journey she met many other young people who, like her, have been forced to leave their homes by violence, persecution, war or poverty. Very often these circumstances have been caused, at least in part, by the climate crisis.
The enforced journey of young refugees like Amal is one of many ways in which the planet is swivelling off its axis. Ever more borders are drawn and walls are built but the climate crisis affects us all. It defies borders and leaps over all walls.
At COP26 Little Amal discovered new realities about the world by meeting changemakers from many of the countries she has visited: young people who embody and express the urgent need to take action to shape a better future.
