In March, British renewable energy company Good Energy nominated six young people to a new advisory board, ranging in age from 12 to 17, with no adults allowed. The members of the Good Future Board gather regularly, giving them the opportunity to pitch ideas to the company’s CEO and other officials, as well as criticize corporate actions.

One of the board members is Shaina Shah, a 14-year-old Londoner. She is committed to environmental preservation and wishes to leave the world in a better state for future generations. “I feel that money should come first for adults,” she argues. “While young people may not always choose the most environmentally responsible option, they have grown up in a society where the consequences of climate change are all too obvious.

When Shaina and the other teens realize the adults made a mistake, they don’t hesitate to notify them. They were chosen following a competition hosted by the environmental charity Eco-Schools gathered over 1,000 kids from around the United Kingdom. “Incredibly passionate, insightful, and impressive” was how the six winners were described.
