Time heals all wounds but one family finds time wasn’t on their side. This video highlights how a small family ​is impacted by the changing climate​ over the course of three generations. ​Children are the most vulnerable, yet least responsible for the effects of climate change.

More than half a billion children live in areas with extremely high flood occurrence and 160 million in high drought severity zones, leaving them highly ​exposed​. Climate change means more droughts, floods, heatwaves and other severe weather conditions. These events can ripple throughout a child’s life and ​limit​ on their access to sanitation, education and opportunities.
