New Youth Portal for Climate Change Campaign

Last year a group of youth from more than 20 countries started a global initiative where they produced a white paper in the lead up to COP21, which allowed for a Youth Commitment under the Lima-Paris Action Agenda. GWP and partners are now taking the next step in launching a youth portal, where the voices of the young people will be gathered in one place. The portal is launched on World Water Day, 22 March.

The Paris Agreement has raised a big global hope in particular for the younger generations, who will have to face climate change effects long-term. The aim of the campaign is to pursue awareness raising efforts among concerned generations (youth) and to support youth to undertake concrete actions to combat climate change effects and have their role recognized by others stakeholders.
