At just 15 years-of-age, filmmaker Slater Jewell-Kemker began attending environmental summits, camera in hand and ready to make a difference.

Just 10 years later, she’s presenting on international climate panels with Greta Thunberg, and encouraging young people around the world to share their stories and campaign for action.

Slater takes us behind the scene of the global youth movement filmed over the course of a decade, sharing the highs and lows of climate activism, and highlighting the inspiring voices and fierce determination of those who are too young to vote, but whose futures are being shaped by decisions made by those in power today.

Youth Unstoppable reinforces that it’s not too late to save our planet, but that we must all act together, and push for bold decisions from those in power, regardless of political interests.


Youth Unstoppable presents a hopeful vision for the future of our planet, and shares insights from the inspiring young people who will lead us there – like you!
