This year the 27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) on Climate Change will take place in Egypt. Yet, despite 26 years of climate negotiations, in 2022, the climate crisis continues to ravage communities, creating multiple and intersecting paths of destruction across the world.
As the ecumenical youth of ACT Alliance, the ACT Youth Participation Community of Practice seeks to develop a digital climate caravan that gives a platform for voices of youth from various parts of the world and highlights solidarity and action from within our ecumenical network.
We want to hear from you! (And particularly from the youth in your organization!).
Please share your stories with us – in the form of pictures, videos, arts or text – around how youth in your region are affected by, and fighting for climate justice in various ways. We seek to collect stories and testimonies from across the ACT Alliance network that will be published on our social media accounts.
- To raise awareness on the intersectional impacts and challenges caused by the climate crisis (with regard to gender, migration, conflict, and young people, among others) across different regions.
- To strengthen and the ecumenical youth voice in the discourse on climate solutions.
- To showcase international youth solidarity within the ecumenical network regarding the climate crisis.
Please find out more information in our concept note and share our posters (download here) with the youth in your organization.
Any questions, as well as photos, videos and other contributions can be sent accordingly to our regional youth contact persons (see poster)
