A nine-year-old, Licypriya Kangujam, roused the spirit across the globe through her anecdotes that describe her journey as environmental activist.

Today, to honor Earth Day2021, this unyielding environmental champion spoke about her inspiration, experiences, and much more.

Licypriya's first parliamentary protest began on February 2, 2019, and she voiced three main demands to our leaders and the Government:

Pass the climate change law in the parliament as soon as possible. Make climate education compulsory in every school in India. Ensure plantation of a minimum of 10 trees by every student in India.

Moving beyond the sphere of her home, she discovered the range of environmental problems that plague the country regularly and realised that active resistance was needed to represent the interests of nature. At 7, she attended the United Nations Climate Conference 2019 and joined the global ranks of climate activists to save the planet and secure its future.

Being one of India’s youngest climate activist, along with struggles, she has made many sacrifices. She dropped out of school just because she did not want to give up her protests against environmental problems and she couldn't afford to do both side by side so she chose this and stood in front of the parliament every week with the demand for immediate climate action.

The significance of this day.

It's time for people of the world to ''take your climate action to the next level.'' According to earth.org, ''The scientific evidence is clear and irrefutable - human activity is causing our planet to warm at an alarming rate. International bodies of scientists have warned that we have just over a decade to halve our emissions to avoid the most devastating impacts of climate change on our food supply, national security, global health, extreme weather, and more.'' Earth Day became an ''environmental movement, working with over 75,000 partners in over 192 countries to drive positive action for our planet'', in 1990.
