The voice of you(th)!

Climate change is one of humanity’s biggest problems at this time, affecting millions of people around the globe and the environment itself. Youth organizing strikes around the world shows the importance of giving them a voice and listening to how they bring up solutions for change.

This world summit will take place on the 25th of January 2021. During the event, world leaders will come together to discuss climate adaptation and make agreements which will be turn to action. Youth will also be given the opportunity to express a text or call to action, which can be adopted by the summit as a joint declaration.
