Tackling the Climate Crisis Head On

As the platform for young leaders building a better, more sustainable future, One Young World’s commitment to combating climate change is embedded in its DNA.

From grassroots conservation efforts, advocating for and lifting the voices of Indigenous communities, to heads of supranational organisations paving the way for sustainable development, One Young World Counsellors and Ambassadors are making a substantial difference on the frontlines.

One Young World at COP26

 

COP (Conference of the Parties) is an annual climate change conference held each year in a different world city. At the summit, delegates including heads of state, climate experts and negotiators come together to agree coordinated action to tackle climate change.

The summit also offers space for countries, international organisations and other delegates to showcase climate action, highlight diverse climate change issues and share knowledge.

Green Financing: How can we reach the most climate-vulnerable communities?

30th September | 3:00 PM CEST

This event forms part of the official programming for All4Climate - Italy 2021.

 

The majority of the most climate-vulnerable countries received less than $20 per person per year in climate change adaptation financing from 2010 – 2017. This is symptomatic of a severely inequitable distribution of green finance and past years have seen an alarming rollback in climate finance contributions.

In this #All4Climate panel, One Young World Climate Ambassadors will discuss the role of young leaders in ensuring equitable financing of climate solutions, the critical importance of funding nature-based solutions, and the pressing need for a tailored approach for developing countries to ensure effective and sustainable change.

Inheriting Climate Change with Maatalii Okalik and Rae Bainteti

 

The Republic of Kiribati, located in the central Pacific Ocean halfway between Australia and Hawaii, will be the first to go underwater as sea levels continue to rise. Simultaneously, Arctic cultures are experiencing the devastating erosion of their land at the hands of global warming. 

Introduced by Curator Amber Lincoln and hosted by trailblazing youth activist and One Young World Ambassador, Kehkashan Basu, the conversation explored how their communities have adapted to overcome the consequences of climate change. This discussion was hosted in partnership with One Young World and the British Museum Youth Collective.
