YOUTH SECTION

THE FIRST ITALIAN YOUTH CLIMATE MOVEMENT


 

The climate crisis is worsening at a growing pace, and there is a lack of effective measures and strategies both at the national and international level. To react to that, thousands of people around the world are taking action to find ‘bottom-up’ solutions and make their peers aware about these problems.

From Australia to Canada, from the United States to the Arab world, from the United Kingdom to China, young people are leading hundreds of climate movements, carrying out activities that have often captured the attention of media, government representatives and members of the United Nations Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). These numerous successes have even led to the recognition of several youth movements as official participants to climate negotiations, with the creation, in 2009, of a specific UNFCCC constituency known as ‘YOUNGO’.

Building upon this, in 2013 Italian Climate Network decided to create the Youth Section – the first youth movement in Italy – to let Italian young people be the main actors of the ongoing change and get in touch with other organisations at the international level.


OBJECTIVES

The goal is to create and ‘train’ a youth movement, comprising not only students, spread throughout the country, so that they can then train their peers on environmental and climate issues, according to the ‘train the trainer’ model. In the international context, the Movement’s objective is to create partnerships with similar associations in other countries and create delegations to participate in major events, meetings and conferences on climate change at the international and national level. The final goal is to let as many Italians as possible be updated concerning the negotiations status, and to make our voice heard as a compact civil society.
