Maisie Williams knows how to make the correct use of her stardom
Last year in an interview with Dazed, Maisie Williams voiced her concern about climate change and its impact on the generations to come. She said, “I want children of my own in the future, but it scares me that the world they will live in could be unsafe. I don’t want to be denied the right to have a child because the world is burning.”
The Game Of Thrones star, 23, is making as much contribution as she can. She is currently working on a documentary called ‘Searching for Chinook’ which is about salmon fishing and protecting endangered Whales.
How can the Green New Deal make an impact on our lives?
Green New Deal is a visionary plan and an environmental movement to ensure global justice. It helps communities and countries to reduce their carbon footprints quickly and fairly. As stated by Dazed, “A Green New Deal would have global justice to its core, supporting all peoples and countries to decarbonize quickly and fairly.”
It was initially proposed almost thirteen years back in 2007 as a collective societal mission to transform our economy.
