Eight Young Eco-Heroes

E Magazine’s Inductees Into the Kid Heroes Hall of Fame

“Kids say the darndest things,” chirped that permier talk show host Art Linkletter. Kids also “do” the darndest things, superbly shown by the eight kids you’re about to meet. They’ve lectured delegates at the United Nations, protested at the White House, built organizations of thousands of members and visited shows from Oprah to Today to A Current Affair.

“If you are thinking one year ahead,” says a Chinese proverb, “sowseed. If you are thinking 10 years ahead, plant a tree. If you are thinking 100 years ahead, educate the people.” These amazing eight have done all three. If you’re worried about the fate of the Earth, take some solace as we unveil the Kid Heroes Hall of Fame.
