At the end of April, in front of the German Parliament, young people from the #FridaysForFuture
movement created a giant installation
made from thousands of protest signs. Unable to take to the streets, these climate activists decided to amplify their message through art. “Fight Every Crisis”, they implored. While the world battles the coronavirus, the climate crisis rages on.
For this prompt, dear writers, tell us, in your opinion, who and what is being forgotten during the covid-19 pandemic. The melting of polar ice caps, the Black Lives Matter movement, the inequities of education. Or, is there an issue or injustice that has been somewhat illuminated as a result of the pandemic: wage inequality, underemployment or food security?
From a community or global perspective, share with us—in a list of three—what should we pay attention to, and why.
