The National Youth Council of Ireland Youth 2030 Young People’s Committee (YPC) is a group of young activists committed to improve youth participation around the issue of global justice in Ireland. They work on topics such as inequalities, climate justice and the SDGs.
Earlier in 2020, alongside former President of Ireland and climate justice champion Mary Robinson, they launched a Youth Manifesto on Climate Justice gathering the voices, ideas, and concern of over 400 young people in Ireland on climate change.
This video is informed by this work and was first shown at the NESC (www.nesc.ie) run – EEAC (https://eeac.eu/) 2020 conference on Just Transition.
Youth 2030 is a global youth work and development education project funded by Irish Aid, which is working to increase the integration, quality, and spread of global youth work and development education in non-formal youth work education, organisations, and projects. Its aim is to create an empowering and clear policy and practice environment for global youth work at both a national, European, and global level. The National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) is working in partnership with Concern Worldwide, Maynooth University, and Trócaire to deliver the Youth 2030 Development Education Programme in the Youth Sector.
