The Climate>Duluth Forum offered a chance to talk about how news and information play a role in discussions about climate change. 

UMD senior Jaeger Moser is studying environment and sustainability, and he said he is passionate about planting seeds in young people. 

"They hear all these words like climate change, fossil fuels, green energy and everything like that. It's just really important for young kids to get exposed early. That way, when they run into it in the future, they will understand it more, they have a little bit of context," Moser said. 

Izzy Laderman, a 16-year-old high school student, told dozens of people at the Powless Cultural Center that she feels her future is at stake. 

The forum was part of a seven-day global news campaign.
