NextGen Climate Conversations: Youth-Led Solutions
16:00 - 17:20 CET // 10:00 - 11:20 ET
adelphi + Smart Prosperity Institute
Youth and civil society are some of the main drivers of the movement to address climate change and impact climate policy within their own communities, states, and on the world stage. Youth advocacy on climate change has had immense impacts on governments around the world increasing their climate ambition, from Fridays for Future filing a lawsuit against the German federal government for its inaction on the climate crisis, and winning to the Sunrise Movement and Climate Strike Canada helping to put climate change on the map in the United States and Canada.
This event brought a youth perspective to some of the most interesting topics in climate and sustainability.
