What is
the brave times?

This international newspaper is designed by young people for young people. It showcases what is currently happening to our planet and shares inspiring articles to create appetite for change. The Brave Times aims to unpack how we behave and live as humans, and how this effects the planet. With a better understanding of what we have and with inspiring initiatives, we can imagine what the future human habitat could look like and start making a change.

The Brave Times will feature at the
Creative Bravery Festival 2021
and at the After the Pandemic site during COP26. The voice of young people needs to be heard in these times of important global decision making.
