William admitted to being concerned about the generation of children. It was during an interview with BBC Sounds that the 39-year-old prince spoke of this affliction, which increased after George, 8 years old, having had an experience at school, Thoma’s Battersea, which left him “confused”.
“Recently, George has been helping with garbage collection at school. I spoke with him and realized that this makes him confused”, he started by exposing, then explaining: “He was a little irritated for having gone out with his colleagues to pick up garbage and, the next day, on the same route, they had gone back to picking up garbage in the same places they had left clean before”.
The heir to the British throne goes on to say that the eldest son did not understand how it was possible that places that had previously been cleansed could become dirty with debris again. “He told me: ‘We clean. Why doesn’t that disappear?’”
A reaction that left the prince thinking about the work that future generations will have to do and the goals that have to be addressed today to prevent climate change. “If we’re not careful, we’re stealing our children’s future because of our current actions. And I think that’s not fair.”
