Stories of TRUST: Calling for Climate Recovery, is about the perfect trifecta of youth, law and justice. This series of short documentaries features the voices of daring youth from across the country who went to court to compel the government to protect our atmosphere, in trust, for future generations. In TRUST Alaska meet 17-year old Nelson Kanuk who explains why permafrost melt, floods, erosion and intense storms threaten homes, communities and culture. Through Nelson’s story we begin to understand the complexity of human and environmental damage caused by climate change and their hopes for a livable future.
