Youth climate advocacy toolkit launched for small island developing states
A new toolkit for youth advocates in small island developing states will help young people in the countries most affected by climate change to influence upcoming international climate talks, including COP 22 in Marrakech this November.
The guide, developed by the Commonwealth Youth Climate Change Network and SIDS Youth AIMS Hub among other partners, comes as world leaders look to build on the historic Paris Climate Change Agreement to curb global temperatures, which was signed last year at COP 21 in France.
Seeking to equip young people with policy-tracking, communications, advocacy and campaigning skills, the toolkit is the result of an initiative organised with the Commonwealth Secretariat, National Youth Council of Mauritius, Indian Ocean Commission, Commonwealth Youth Council, European Union, Australia Direct Aid Program, and US Embassy in Mauritius.
