nfoPoint conference: Voices from the Future - Testimonies from Youth Advisory Climate Councils ambassadors


Where will we be in a decade without strong climate action?

Young people, all over the world, have been raising their voices to demand stricter and more commitment towards action against climate change. Since 2020, the People & Planet (P&P) project – funded under the DEAR Programme - has been raising awareness and prompting action on climate change and water scarcity. With its Youth Advisory Climate Councils, the project has been promoting the exchange of ideas and cooperation between young people and local authorities in Europe and Africa, that can promote and implement a more sustainable development.

Is this a dynamic that can really make the difference in topics such as the Climate Action, the pursuit of Social Justice, or the promotion of Human Rights and Active Citizenship? What are the successes that this work relationship is bringing, and where is more progress needed?
