At 11 and 13 years-old, Melati and Isabel Wijsen started an enormous fight to force their government to ban plastic bags in Bali. Their island crumbles under mass tourism and consumption. An army of little hands strives to hide it all. Stakes are high. 67% of GDP depends on tourism. And the plastic crisis only makes climate change worse.
We went to meet the two sisters in their home in Bali, a paradise at the forefront of climate change. They share their experience on activism and kids empowerment and their secret: Melati and Isabel attend Green School, in the heart of Bali. Founded by John Hardy, this experimental school immerses kids with their reality : a world about to end, and another one to invent.
