Xiye Bastida — climate youth leader, indigenous climate refugee, visionary — is a NY-based youth climate activist spearheading the #StrikeWithUs movement and #FridaysForFuture student strike group. Xiye will share her climate mobilization message as a prominent indigenous climate refugee. Xiye was one of three featured youth visionaries for The Intercept’s “Right to a Future” NYC event hosted by Naomi Klein. XIye organizes and teams with fellow youth and legacy climate activists to mobilize — why? — because “intergenerational cooperation and collaboration are essential to climate action”.

Serving the Compton, CA community for 20 years, CKC has created the We Care Tour, partnering with the Los Angeles Lakers Youth Foundation. CKC is launching their national campaign, presenting CKC ECO Package to schools across the nation — stainless steel straws, fork, spoon and water bottles— inter drive to create single-use plastic-free schools.

Xiuhtezcatl Martinez — indigenous environmental activist & hip hop artist — is a founding youth director of Earth Guardians, a worldwide conservation organization. Xiuhtezcatl is one of 21 plaintiffs involved in the Juliana v United States legal case, suing the federal government for failing to act on climate change (2015). In Paris during UN Framework Convention on Climate Change COP21, Xiuhtezcatl won the Jury Award for his self-produced selection “Speak for the Trees” at GloCha’s Global Youth Music contest with the aim to present music “to inspire the negotiations”. It is a special honor to invite Xiuhtezcatl to our stage during the 2019 UN Climate Action Summit, demonstrating the power of music to mobilize for climate action across the earth.
