Dashni Morad

Kurdish singer/human rights and environmental activist

We don't have time anymore, we need everyone to become an environmental activist not just experts, influencers or celebrities. And I know that it's unfair to put all of the burden on young people, fighting climate change, preserving our environment and acting against global warming.

But you don't have to fight alone. You have the strongest ally one can ever wish for.

OUR PLANET, it has a natural defence system called biodiversity that helps protect us all.

I am based in a hostile region with wars breaking out by the hour and where gender inequality makes it very hard for me to continue my activism, yet I do everything in my power to educate children about nature.

If you need a personal reason to stand up for the planet, remember that everyone you love lives there. That pale blue dot, it's our only home. Protect it.

Dashni has also initiated the project "Green Kids" in the Kurdistan region to teach children everything they need to know about our symbiotic relationship with the environment, and all the animals and plants that coexist within it.
