Climate change, Adaptation and Justice

Climate change disproportionately affects populations in the Global South, despite their lower contribution to the root causes of this global crisis. As prevention and adaptation efforts progress too slowly, young people across the globe are stepping up to the challenges of climate change by speaking out, as well as educating and mobilizing their communities. This session offers a point-counterpoint debate between national leaders and young climate activists on the challenges of action, the need for partnerships, strategies for adaptation and resilience, and the future of climate justice.
