12岁女孩让世界沉默了六分钟(视频)

12岁女孩Severn Suzuki在联合国地球峰会上的震撼演讲,她的演讲让世界沉默了六分钟。可在场的大人及全球的观众感动或震撼之后,会做些什么?这个演讲在1992年,时至今日已过去近二十年,但是这个世界真的开始在改变、恢复过去的美好吗?答案在你我心中。

Severn Suzuki联合国演讲稿(中英文):

12岁的铃木瑟玟(Severn Suzuki)在1992年里约世界高峰会上,对全世界环境部长发出警语,她的演说简单扼要却直指人心,要求「大人们」对于环保要说到做到,否则就是对下一代的不负责任。

Hello, I’m Severn Suzuki speaking for E.C.O. – The Environmental Children’s Organisation.
大家好,我是Severn Suzuki,我代表儿童环境组织来此演讲。

We are a group of twelve and thirteen-year-olds from Canada trying to make a difference:Vanessa Suttie, Morgan Geisler, Michelle Quigg and me. We raised all the money ourselves to come six thousand miles to tell you adults you must change your ways. Coming here today, I have no hidden agenda. I am fighting for my future.
我们是一个十三四岁的小群体,我们想改变些什么:Vanessa Suttie, Morgan Geisler, Michelle Quigg和我。我们自己挣钱支持我们来到这里,旅行5000英里只为告诉你们成年人,你们必须改变你们的生活方式。今天我来到这里,我背后没有任何经纪人,我们为我们的未来而战。

Losing my future is not like losing an election or a few points on the stock market. I am here to speak for all generations to come.
失去未来不像落选选举或者股市浮动那么简单,我来到这里是为了将来所有的世代而演讲。

I am here to speak on behalf of the starving children around the world whose cries go unheard.
我演讲是为了世界所有忍受饥饿的儿童,而他们的哭泣却无人听见。

I am here to speak for the countless animals dying across this planet because they have nowhere left to go. We cannot afford to be not heard.
我为这个行星上无数正在垂死的动物而演讲,因为它们几乎已经无处容身了。

I am afraid to go out in the sun now because of the holes in the ozone. I am afraid to breathe the air because I don’t know what chemicals are in it.
我现在害怕晒太阳,因为臭氧层出现了空洞。我现在害怕呼吸空气,因为我不知道那里有多少化学物质。

I used to go fishing in Vancouver with my dad until just a few years ago we found the fish full of cancers. And now we hear about animals and plants going extinct every day — vanishing forever.
以前和我爸爸经常在vancouver钓鱼,但在近几年却发现鱼的身上到处是癌细胞。我们每天都会听说有的动物和植物绝种,那是永远消失的事情。
In my life, I have dreamt of seeing the great herds of wild animals, jungles and rainforests full of birds and butterfilies, but now I wonder if they will even exist for my children to see.
我一生的梦想就是能看到成群的野生动物,茂盛的丛林和大片的雨林中到处是鸟类和蝴蝶在飞舞。但是现在我想知道我们这些小孩是否还能再看到它们?

Did you have to worry about these little things when you were my age?
在您那个年代,您曾经担心过我们现在担心的事吗?

All this is happening before our eyes and yet we act as if we have all the time we want and all the solutions. I’m only a child and I don’t have all the solutions, but I want you to realise, neither do you!
所有这一切就发生在我们眼前,然而我们还是一直向大自然无度索取我们所需要的。我仅仅是个孩子,我不知道该怎么办。 但我们这些孩子——这个星球的未来需要让您认识到,您不能说没办法!

You don’t know how to fix the holes in our ozone layer. You don’t know how to bring salmon back up a dead stream. You don’t know how to bring back an animal now extinct.And you can’t bring back forests that once grew where there is now desert. If you don’t know how to fix it, please stop breaking it!
您不知道怎么去修补大气的臭氧空洞,您也不知道怎么去从死亡的河流中拯救鱼类,您更不知道如何把灭绝的动物复苏,您也不能把沙漠中从前完整的森林带回来。如果您不知道如何拯救,那么请您停止破坏吧!

Here, you may be delegates of your governments, business people, organisers, reporters or poiticians – but really you are mothers and fathers, brothers and sister, aunts and uncles – and all of you are somebody’s child.
在这里,您可能是您政府商业人士的代表、组织者、记者或政客。但您们也是父亲和母亲、兄弟和姐妹、阿姨和叔叔,你们都会或多或少的为了下一代而活着。

I’m only a child yet I know we are all part of a family, five billion strong, in fact, 30 million species strong and we all share the same air, water and soil — borders and governments will never change that.
我只是一个小孩,但我知道我们都是一个大家庭的成员,超过60亿人的大家庭,以及超过三千万物种的大家庭,政府和国界永远都无法改变这个事实。

I’m only a child yet I know we are all in this together and should act as one single world towards one single goal.
我身为小孩都知道,我们在地球的母亲怀中都是孩子。我们应该为了相同的目的进行相同的行动!

In my anger, I am not blind, and in my fear, I am not afraid to tell the world how I feel.
然而事实却让我很愤怒,但我也很清醒,我虽然害怕,但我敢于告诉世界我真实的感受。

In my country, we make so much waste, we buy and throw away, buy and throw away, and yet northern countries will not share with the needy. Even when we have more than enough, we are afraid to lose some of our wealth, afraid to share.
在我的祖国,我们制造了如此之多的垃圾,我们购买商品,我们随之丢弃,买来,再丢弃。然而有些国家,有些人,却不会分享给那些真正需要的人们,甚至他们拥有的远远超过自身需要的时候。他们害怕分享,害怕失去自己的财富。

In Canada, we live the privileged life, with plenty of food, water and shelter — we have watches, bicycles, computers and television sets.
在加拿大,他们过着特权般的生活,他们有很多食物、房子和水。他们拥有很多手表,汽车,各种电器和奢侈品。

Two days ago here in Brazil, we were shocked when we spent some time with some children living on the streets. And this is what one child told us: “I wish I was rich and if I were, I would give all the street children food, clothes, medicine, shelter and love and affection.”
在巴西,我被2天前见到的情景震惊了,那时我和当地的小孩在玩耍,其中一个小孩说:“我希望我能富裕起来,然后我会给这个街道所有的小孩饭吃,给他们衣服穿,医疗,住房和爱”。

If a child on the street who has nothing, is willing to share, why are we who have everyting still so greedy?
如果一个孩子在自己一无所有的时候都能愿意分享,为什么拥有一切的大人却如此贪婪?

I can’t stop thinking that these children are my age, that it makes a tremendous difference where you are born, that I could be one of those children living in the Favellas of Rio; I could be a child starving in Somalia; a victim of war in the Middle East or a beggar in India.
我永远不能忘记这些和我同龄的孩子,当你出生的时候,他和我们真的很不相同,我也许生活在贫民窟,也可能是终日饿着肚子的小孩,也可能是中东战争的牺牲品,或者印度的小乞丐。
I’m only a child yet I know if all the money spent on war was spent on ending poverty and finding environmental answers, what a wonderful place this earth would be!
我只是一个小孩,然而我知道,要是把花在战争上的钱,用在找寻环境问题答案上来,或用在结束贫穷并找到解决的方案上来,这个星球将是个多么美好的地方啊!

At school, even in kindergarten, you teach us to behave in the world. You teach us: not to fight with others, to respect others, to clean up our mess, not to hurt other creatures, to share – not be greedy.
在学校,甚至在幼稚园,你们大人教我们如何处世,你们告诉我们不要打架,要尊重对方。找出答案,解决矛盾。去分享,而不是贪婪。

Then why do you go out and do the things you tell us not to do?
你们大人为什么去做与你们教导孩子相反的事情呢?

Do not forget why you’re attending these conferences, who you’re doing this for — we are your own children. You are deciding what kind of world we will grow up in. Parents should be able to comfort their children by saying “everyting’s going to be alright” , “we’re doing the best we can” and “it’s not the end of the world”.
不要忘记你们为何而来到这里开会,你们为谁做事情?我们是你们的下一代,你们正在决定我们将要在一个什么样的环境中成长,父母需要能够宽慰孩子们,告诉他们“一切都没问题,那不是世界末日,我们正在尽其所能的改变”。

But I don’t think you can say that to us anymore. Are we even on your list of priorities? My father always says “You are what you do, not what you say.”
但我不能再相信这样的话了,孩子们还是你们的优选名单吗?我爸爸总是说:“听其言,观其行,是认识一个人最好的方法”。

Well, what you do makes me cry at night. You grown ups say you love us. I challenge you, please make your actions reflect your words. Thank you for listening
然而,你们所做的事让我在夜晚哭泣,你们成年人说你们爱我们,我不会再相信了,因为只有行动和语言的合一,才是找回信任和未来的唯一方法!谢谢!
