Meet Aneeshwar Kunchala, the world’s youngest documentary presenter 🤩

This past November, at just 7 years old, he presented the successful SKY Kids documentary ‘COP27 - Six Ways To Save Our Planet’, produced by Fresh Start Media & Sky TV.

What is this environmental documentary about?

Put simply, it is about six children from six different parts of the world, set out to discover and explain practical solutions to the serious problems facing our planet!

Aneeshwar is from Warrington, UK, and gets in touch with his friends from Australia, Kenya, Singapore, the U.S.A. and Colombia, to find out what is going on in their countries.

Then, these young activists discuss solutions that could help save our planet.

Some ideas sound simple, like planting trees, while others are a bit more complicated, like building eco-friendly floating cities.

It’s exciting to see how scientists are coming up with new ideas in order to help us live more sustainably! 🍃

So, if you want to help out in this battle against climate change, listen carefully to what Aneeshwar has to say. 🙏🏻
