When I Am 18 (2009) Short Film
Watch the animated short When I Am 18.
When I Am 18 is an animated short film featuring the drawings and voices of sisters Maja, 8, and Lily, 5, from the UK.
They make a desperate plea to governments ahead of the most important environmental conference in history - the COP15 summit in Copenhagen in December. Maja and Lily beg world leaders to take action to give legal protection to the world's rainforests and the animals that inhabit them.
Otherwise, by the time the girls are old enough to vote, it will be too late for their generation to save the rain forests.
