Aaron Sherinian, vice-president of communications and public relations for the UN Foundation, says millennials' impatience about the problems of climate change is an impetus for change.

Millennials, he said, are the first generation that aren't wasting their time debating whether climate change is a reality; they're focused on finding solutions and results.

"They're not patient; they shouldn't be," Sherinian says. Millennials know "scary things are happening" and they're eager to fix the problem, Sherinian says.

"I think the millennial generation's hunger for actionable solutions is what could drive us further than ever before," he said.
