Good morning, this is Nicolas. Today, we’re hearing about an innovative solution that seeks to tackle air pollution, proposed by a group of students selected as the winners of this year’s Geneva Challenge.

We also learn about what young activists expect from the UN at the 76-year-old organization’s Young Activists Summit, and that most climate migrants do not cross national borders, but are displaced within their own country.

An app created by students and selected as the winner of this year’s Geneva Challenge competition offers a new way to tackle the problem.
