Young people have a lot more life to live, but if we don't address climate change, the planet they live on will look nothing like it does today. The good news is, a number of young people are putting up a fight.

At the United Nations' New York City headquarters, Mashable spoke to Noura Berrouba and Alexandria Villaseñor, two young activists who are working to make the world a better, greener place. Berrouba, 25, serves on the governing body of the European Youth Parliament, a program that helps young people engage with crucial political and cultural issues in their region. Villaseñor, 13, skipped school multiple Fridays in a row to strike outside the United Nations headquarters in New York, inspired by Greta Thunberg's #FridaysForFuture movement.
