Today, more than a billion people around the world will celebrate Earth Day. We recognize the importance of not only becoming more aware of what we can do to reduce our carbon footprint, but of how we can engage the next generation in the conversation about ways we can reduce, reuse, recycle and renew Earth’s resources.

A new sub-site on the Thomson Reuters Sustainability site will do just that! Youth Perspectives will feature articles and observations from highly engaged young people across the globe. It’s a space for the next generation to lend their voices to the environmental sustainability dialogue, and a place for us all to learn from one another and get re-energized to come up with fresh ideas for ways we can make a difference.

“Sustainability is about meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs,” said Stephane Bello, Chief Financial Officer, Thomson Reuters. “Sustainability from Thomson Reuters gives fresh voice to the current issues relating to this basic problem of preservation. It’s right that the next generation should have their voice through the site.”
