From school strikes to demonstrations, and to innovation, young people’s mobilization all around the world shows the power they possess to help tackle the climate emergency.
Building on this momentum, the Secretary-General launched his Youth Advisory Group on Climate Change on 27 July to amplify youth voices and to engage young people in open and transparent dialogue as the UN gears up to raise ambition and accelerate action to flatten the climate curve.
