Young people of Ireland want climate justice

MANIFESTO

WE CALL FOR UNITY

Pointing fingers at each other will not solve the climate crisis. Whether we are young or old, rich or poor, from urban or rural areas, climate change will impact us all. Standing in unity while recognising our different realities is how we must tackle this challenge.

WE CALL FOR A GREEN CHECK

How society functions in any given democracy is dictated by the priorities of its government. Make climate change our priority. Deliver radical, people centred policies that would support the transition we need.

WE CALL FOR A TRANSITION THAT IS JUST

It is normal to fear the unknown. However, we cannot afford to continue, as if our house is not on fire. We need to transition for the better of all in society and to reach those that are furthest behind in our society first.

WE CALL FOR A SOCIAL JUSTICE LENS TO THE CLIMATE CRISIS

It is those who are least responsible for climate change that will suffer its gravest consequences. We cannot solve the climate crisis by ignoring Inequality and Human Rights. So, let’s build global empathy and leave no one behind.

Youth 2030 is a partnership between NYCI and Irish Aid, working in consortia with Concern Worldwide, Maynooth University and Trócaire to deliver Global Youth Work and Development Education to the youth sector.
