YOUTH KI AWAAZ

ACTION NETWORK

Take your advocacy campaigns to the next level to create greater impact.

 

While the world is facing some of the toughest challenges we've ever seen - from climate change to inequality - young people are leading the way to creating a better, more just world. From path-breaking national movements, conducting powerful journalism, to creating social enterprises, the true power to positively influence and impact the world lies with young people.

The Youth Ki Awaaz Action Network is a programme to enable such changemakers working on key Sustainable Development Goals to scale the impact of their existing projects and campaigns.

As a part of its 3-day residential bootcamp, you get to learn how to mobilise and organise more young people to join your movement, build a media and public narrative around your issues, create effective and engaging campaigns, as well as create decision-maker engagement that leads to policy impact and action.

The programme is currently looking for young changemakers who are working on climate action, through projects, campaigns, citizen's movements, or as journalists and highlight the need for policy action. If you are eager and enthusiastic to act on the climate crises and want to learn key campaigning, policy action and public narrative building skills, this is an opportunity for you to be a part of a network and amplify your impact.
