Young-"accelerators"-of-climate-action


 



On November 8, Ihad the opportunity to moderate an  evententitled "Young accelerators of climate action", being organised inparallel to the ongoing climate change negotiations (COP23) . 

This space brought together young people from the Dominican Republic, Nepal,France, Austria, Uganda and Colombia to show what these leaders are doing intheir country in the framework of theaction for climate empowerment (ACE), contemplated in  Article 12 of the Paris Agreement. 

This article is very important because it will be the first step to promoteadaptation and mitigation to climate change from non-governmental actors suchas civil society and NGOs. This is because it deals with the way in which education and access to information willbe promoted in the fight against this phenomenon. 

During the session, young people like Eddy Vásquez from the Dominican Republicexpressed the importance of empowering citizens and forgetting the old custom of leaving all actions in the hands of thegovernment. He does this through his organization "SustainableYouth", where through different projects, he has educated more than 3000teachers or brought to the same inclusion of climate change in the curricula ofseveral schools. 

In addition, the representatives of Nepal and Austria said that it is crucialto be able to empower non-governmental actors in using creativity andinnovation, since traditional education and training becomes obsolete when weneed the will and commitment from everyone to be able to adapt to climate change.The above is carried out by Joséphine Raynauld, who in France works withClimates organizing "COP In My City", a project that is carried out  worldwide and empowers students of schools to be active actors in the fight againstclimate change.Finally, from the great experience of these young people it was concluded thatin the negotiations on how to implement the Paris Agreement, the politicalincidence of young delegates is crucial for ACE to be taken into account and build the capacity of the different communities. This way, starting ascitizens and in our different fronts of action, we can promote a true climateresponsibility that allows us to overcome the challenges that come more frequentlyevery day.
