YOUTH KI AWAAZ

ACTION NETWORK

on Climate Action

 

The planet is getting hotter. Resources are getting more limited. Pollution and consumption is on the rise. Across the world, quality of life and access to education, employment, healthcare and opportunities is getting severely impacted. In India, over 600 million lives are at risk from the effects of climate change and we lost Rs 62,000 crore in 2017 because of extreme weather events.

A key aspect of climate action is to inform, empower and mobilize young leaders who can create practical solutions, engage with decision-makers and masses alike, and build policy. Which is where the Youth Ki Awaaz Action Network comes in.

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.

If you are eager to address issues around 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.
