United Nations published this video item, entitled “Virtual Youth Dialogue on Climate with Deputy Secretary-General” – below is their description.
The climate crisis is among the most pressing issues facing the world today. The consequences of climate change are more dire than ever before – and the window of opportunity to address them is rapidly diminishing. Young people are at the frontlines of the fight against climate change since they stand to bear the brunt of the extensive, devastating, and irreversible impacts. Younger generations are increasingly aware of the challenges and risks of the climate crisis and recognize the opportunity to achieve sustainable development through climate action.
Over the last several years, the world has witnessed the unparalleled solidarity of young people around climate justice. Whether through education, technology, science, sport, fashion, or law ─ young people far and wide are utilizing their skills to mobilize climate action.
With less than three months to COP26, the engagement of young people to demand urgent, bold, and ambitious actions on climate finance and adaptation and resilience is critical.United Nations YouTube Channel
