The Importance of Wealth Building for Climate Activists

I think it is really important for young people to build wealth in their youth, so they can be financially empowered to make a difference with their wallets. It is just as equally important to understand finance and what it means in the simplest of terms so that when we enter the negotiation rooms, we understand what is being negotiated and what that translates into in our day-to-day lives.

Remember, wisdom is sometimes hidden in books, but mostly in the knowledge built over time by your immediate neighbor. So as you build your knowledge of finance, observe and learn what is happening in your surrounding. Especially for climate activists, it is really critical to observe what is happening in your ecosystem and immediate environment to determine how that will affect and impact you both in the short and long term.
