Inspired by the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child’s 30th anniversary, Dutch filmmaker Mirjam Marks focused her work on an issue affecting children worldwide: climate change. Marks asked children from around the world to share their views on this important topic, giving them all the same assignment: Make a film and voice your opinion.
