SolarGeneration youth hold a banner saying "don't drown our future" in front a Buddhist temple in the small coastal village of Khun Samutchine, the first community in Thailand to suffer the direct impacts of coastal erosion caused largely by storm surges brought about by climate change. The temple, now beside the eroded coastline, was once located several kilometers from the beach. SolarGenration youth are asking world governments to champion renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) meets this week in Bangkok to discuss ways to mitigate global warming.
