Words are pretty (blablabla)

 

In this two hour workshop - run by and for youth climate activists - we’ll contrast the ‘pretty words’ that world leaders have pledged in the first few days of COP26, with the tangible actions that are required to keep global temperatures below 1.5 degrees. Participants will work together to co-create solutions for addressing the climate crisis, and will work with live illustrators to translate them into artwork. We’ll display the results of the workshop in the Extreme Hangout throughout the rest of COP26, as a reminder that words are pretty (bla bla bla), but it is action that creates change.

Youth Unstoppable

 

 

A film 11 years in the making, Youth Unstoppable documents the struggles and events of the largely unseen and misunderstood Global Youth Climate Movement. At age 15, filmmaker Slater Jewell-Kemker began attending environmental summits, camera in hand, wide-eyed and ready to make a difference. What began as a single journey evolved into an intimate and challenging documentary shot behind the front lines of the largely unseen and misunderstood Global Youth Climate Movement. Seen through the lens of Slater’s camera, Youth Unstoppable documents the struggles, events, and first hand effects on the youth fighting to be heard at home and within the frustrating and complex process of UN Climate Change negotiations. From flood ravaged villages in Nepal to luxury hotels in Cancun, from the tailings ponds of the Alberta Tar Sands to the riots of Copenhagen, culminating with the intense and defining events at the 21st UN Climate Change Conference in Paris, Youth Unstoppable shows us a powerful vision for the future of our planet and the young people who will lead us there.

Climate Justice Panel hosted by Channel 4

 

 

 

 

Chaired by Krishnan Guru-Murthy, a panel of prominent, young activists, Dr Mya-Rose Craig and Noga Levy Rapoport discuss the intersectionality of sustainability with class, gender, race and how those least responsible for the problems are most likely to bear the brunt of the negative effects of climate crisis

12:00 - 13:00

Mobilising communities - Race, Gender, Injustice and the Climate Crisis

The effects of climate change have not been borne equally - ending the climate crisis is as much about halting global emissions as it is about ensuring justice for its victims. It is essential to put forward climate solutions that recognise this divide, and acknowledge the importance of grassroots, community based action. In this panel session, hear from young leaders about how marginalised communities are mobilising towards ending the climate crisis, mitigating its effects, and achieving climate justice

Integrated Community Forest Management: Protecting people and the planet

Source of air, water, food, shelter, medicine, Forests are critical to the survival of every living thing on Earth and provide livelihoods for 1.6 billion people. Forests are also a powerful natural climate solution. As they grow, trees absorb more carbon than they emit and release pure oxygen. In fact, conserving forests could cut an estimated 7 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide each year—the equivalent of getting rid of every car on the planet. Yet, alarmingly, deforestation and degradation are still ongoing, in particular in the tropics—triggering a global chain reaction of increased greenhouse gas emissions, rising temperatures, and devastating forest fires. During this session, the Rainforest Alliance will discuss how community forests can contribute to climate mitigation and adaptation and vice-versa, and how to strengthen this linkage to achieve greater resilience for nature and local communities.

Moral Courage: Climate Justice and Human Rights

The adoption of the Paris Agreement in 2015 required an almighty global commitment and collaboration, moral courage - on a historic level. Leaps forward have been made in the years since, but the voices of young people and the marginalised are still too often left out of the conversation. Global leaders and policy makers, put simply, aren’t doing enough to create a sustainable, equitable world for all. What are the next big leaps forward that we must take, together, with young leaders?

The power of investing in youth-led solutions

What would the story look like, if we embraced the best of what already exists? Many of the solutions to the global climate crisis are out there right now, being led by young people in every community, corner, and forum around the world. In the last 12 months, YMCA’s flagship Youth-Led Solutions initiative has invested some $175,000 into these very ideas, with demonstrable impact already. Young people are demanding accountability and taking action - how do we continue to elevate their revolution?

Democracy Café - Why is youth engagement in the fight against climate change vital for democracy?

This workshop will take the form of a Democracy Café, our reinvigoration of the 17th-century coffee house tradition, where members of society would gather and discuss local issues. This method enables young people to lead the conversation, fostering teamwork and collaboration. The attendees will split into several groups to discuss ‘Why is youth engagement in the fight against climate change vital for democracy’. The workshop will consist of 3 different rounds, all of which participants will be given options to vote on and, consequently, discuss their opinions. After each round, all the participants will gather together to briefly recap to the entire group what each table has discussed.
