Climate Justice Project: 2023
Future Generations – Climate Justice Project seeks to explore and highlight the systemic and human rights issues related to the climate crisis.
With this partnership, we will bring the unique voices of young people who are missing from the climate discourse. Young people from marginalised, rural, and disadvantaged backgrounds are often left out of the conversation and their reality is oftentimes not represented in national and global policies as a result.
Our project will specifically address this by:
- Creating the space for young people to explore the topic of Climate Justice
- Recognising the different layers of discriminations that exist in the climate crisis debate
- Supporting young people to develop the skills they need to be advocates of climate justice
- Empowering young people to take on a local/regional response to climate justice
- To facilitate a global response to climate justice by including youth voices from the global south
