This film tells the story of a 13-year-old boy who sensed the depth of the ecological and climate crisis. By expressing his sadness, Oskar started a chain reaction so that his fellow students began to grapple with the potential collapse of societies due to climate change. By challenging the school curriculum, to learn what really matters to his future, Oskar offers a message for all of us. The implications for adult solidarity with young people become clear – to support them and society in adapting emotionally and practically to the disruptions ahead, as a complement to bold carbon cuts and drawdown.
