Connect4Climate

The University of Maryland (UMD) Students Connect4Climate is an ongoing connection project between UMD students and The World Bank on climate change. The event took place at the World Bank Headquarters at Washington DC, and Dr. Leszek Sibilski, the professor of the university's contemporary social problems class took several students to the event to encourage young people to connect for climate change.

After the event, the whole sociology class, which consists of 50 students, assisted in making this video, showing their passion and enthusiasm towards the connection of other young students concerning the climate change, right here, right now, together.
