Two Portland middle schoolers are fighting to address climate change. It's a fight to educate local students and lawmakers that's now being recognized around the world.
"We're the ones affected the most by climate change," said Jeremy Clark. "We have to do something."
Eighth graders Jeremy Clark and Charlie Abrams began their mission after Clark saw a cover of National Geographic Magazine.

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their
rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and
filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that happening with her own kids and began a
quest to uncover how it might impact their development. As with her
other two award-winning documentaries on mental health, Ruston takes a
deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of
family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media,
video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and
unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors,
psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time
impacts kids’ development and also offers solutions on how adults can
empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.
SCREENAGERS addresses the most pervasive parenting issue of our time head on—depicting teen struggles over social media, video games and internet addiction. The film empowers kids to best navigate the digital world and provides practical resources to help them do it.
We combed through the data to find schools where two-thirds or more of sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders are certified math whizzes, able to tackle tough problems using logic, statistics, fractions, geometry and more.
