NEW YORK, Sept. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — WaterBear, the free streaming-for-impact platform dedicated to the future of our planet, announces the release of its first WaterBear Original feature documentary YOUTH UNSTOPPABLE. Directed and narrated by Canadian filmmaker and climate activist Slater Jewell-Kemker, YOUTH UNSTOPPABLE tells the story of the youth climate movement from the very beginning.
Premiering at New York Climate Week, YOUTH UNSTOPPABLE will be available to watch for free on the WaterBear platform from 24th September – the day of the global climate strike. Over the course of 12 years filming in nine countries, the film documents Slater’s intimate journey from the age of 13 to adulthood as she grows alongside this diverse and ever evolving movement of youth shaping the world they want to live in. Now with the world at a crossroads, YOUTH UNSTOPPABLE aims to reignite the energy the movement was experiencing before the pandemic, and unite youth around the world in combating the biggest challenge humanity has faced.

After 12 years of documenting the global youth climate movement, I’m excited to be bringing the film to a wider audience with the help of WaterBear, a platform that understands this need for connection.”
