No matter our country — or demographic, we could probably all stand to chat up someone we know about why climate change sucks and what we should do about it a little more than we are now. Who would be willing to sit through all that just to spend time with you? Your grandparents, of course.

In a campaign reminiscent of The Great Schlep of ’08, the Australian Youth Climate Coalition put together this video to encourage just such inter-generational communication. And to show that just because they don’t have their teeth anymore, doesn’t mean your granny and gramps can’t figure out a future of climate change is gonna bite.
