    I think that those who bear the responsibility after the government are the young and the young, because they may pollute the environment by throwing garbage and doing things that pollute the environment, such as uprooting trees for the little ones. We all know that trees clean the environment and protect it from pollution.
    And the evidence for this is a saying
    “If adults are not doing the right thing, children and young people must do the right thing,” Ms Oliveira said. I think she said something important, which is that I, the young and the young, also have a relationship with the responsibility of the environment and preserving it from pollution and others, knowing that it falls to their responsibility to preserve the environment from pollution after governments and after presidents.

      Thanks for your contribution, enterprising_technology. You say the responsibility lies with the younger generation as they are causing pollution / climate change. Can you say why you think the older generation do not contribute to climate change? And what actions do you think the younger generation should take?

      But don't you think you underestimated the elderly?
      I think that the role of the elderly is not to be underestimated
      They are the ones who raise awareness among young people and push them to help and benefit young people with their experience in life, and they may have the authority as a minister or head of a company or other positions
      And they constitute a large percentage in the world, so why do we not benefit from them? Is this not true??

        And I think that they are the ones who lived life’s experiences and knew failure from success, and I think that we should not define a specific group because all groups in society when they share their ideas, I think we can get rid of this problem because with cooperation everything will be easier for us, meaning that young people only think and they will ask the elderly for Their opinion and then the elderly know the successful thing from the unsuccessful because they have lived many experiences and then they can help the youth and help their country and society as well

        I agree with you because community members believe that advancing age for some means decreasing their value, status and role in society, while the role of the elderly in society, even if they age, varies. Consultations, advice and solutions through the experience he gained throughout his life, and he may outperform others in many measures of job performance. He is more aware, less absent, has different social skills, and is more stable than others, so he does not want to change after reaching an advanced age

    When Oliveira said (we had to sue them [to give them another chance to do the right thing...if adults don't do the right thing, children and young people should do the right thing)
    You have already proven the strength of the youth and young people group, but I think that leaving the obstacle on this group will make us fall into the ambush of disunity that will cause us to perish soon. I cannot deny the power of young people and young people in making a difference in this issue, But why leave the obstacle to them? I believe that if we distribute efforts and work in this issue equally and correctly between us as age groups, we will accomplish this successfully,Where in the case of Oliveira and her friends, the elderly had to communicate with global environmental institutions or with senior figures in the European Court of Human Rights in order to facilitate the delivery of the message of these young young men,That is, we complement each other in this case. We cannot give the case to a young group only, but to every individual who lives on these geographical spots.

    +1 Who is responsible for helping reduce climate change - old people or young people? Young people, do you agree? No, they should both help reduce climate change. I said this because as they said young people:
    Andre Oliveira, 13, and sister
    Sofia 16 years old, and their friends that the leaders do
    They are doing enough to change the climate and have even made Europe polluted by the wildfires in their native Portugal. The Oliveira brothers, along with four other young men, decided to sue the governments of the 33rd most polluted countries in Europe. When they told the European Court of Human Rights that these countries are reducing emissions, the court accepted their case and the court gave priority to young people. So if the adults don't do the right thing, the young and the young must do the right thing.

      But not all the elderly are polluters of the climate, some of them support the climate and help the youth and go out in demonstrations with the youth, and you know that their percentage is not insignificant. What do you expect to happen if the elderly withdraw from the climate issue and were a neutral party?? Knowing that they are the largest class in the world

        compassionate_explanation's comment 01 Feb 2022

        I agree with you that the elderly are not polluters of the environment. It is true that the elderly help the youth and go out with the youth in demonstrations. I also know that their percentage is not small. The thing benefits the youth a little, if a part gives up its function the whole body gets tired and gets sick, and so does society, its age groups are like members and society is like the body, so if there is a group that does not care. About her job, the result will be, she destroys society. Climate benefits and harms everyone. Everyone must help each other and cooperate to slow and reduce climate change.

    I answered that (both are equally responsible), and I said this because: Every person who lives in the world, old and young, is responsible for his own actions and deeds. Society is like a body،
    If a part gives up its function, the whole body gets tired and sick, as well as society, its age groups are like members and society is like the body, so if there is a group that does not care about its function, the result will be, It destroys society. Climate benefits and harms everyone. Everyone must conserve it (and they must cooperate and help each other to slow and reduce climate change). Adults have life experience and when you collaborate with young people's ideas, there will be powerful results for their methods of mitigating climate change.
    And I will give you an example to understand more: Imagine with me that there is a team that plays football and the defense category in the team does not care about winning or losing, will the team win??
    Of course (no) he did not care, and the same thing will happen in reality with the climate if the responsibility lies with the young or the old only.

    In my opinion, the "youth" will bear the responsibility after the government!
    To begin with, young people are not just victims of climate change, they are also important contributors to climate action. ...Educate yourselves about the impact of climate change!
    The youth are the leaders of change and the global climate summit!!
    We can raise the voices of young people to protect the future of our planet. ...Climate change has become a living reality, and as its effects intensify with the passage of time, it is the children and youth of today who will face the penalties!!
    (We are the last generation that can end climate change. We can and we will do it. Kheshigragal said)!

    Adolescents from all over the world have not succumbed to being passive victims, and they are resisting to a degree we have never seen before. Take Greta Thunberg, for example. This 15-year-old Swedish girl sparked a global movement of schoolchildren in 2018 to demand governments take greater action to combat climate change. Millions of students are currently marching to show their support.!

    “Adopting a low-carbon lifestyle and career choices, young people should be given the opportunity to participate effectively in the decision-making process at the local, national and global levels and they can be a strong support for initiatives that will lead to the adoption of far-reaching legislation!”
    (We will raise the voices of young people to protect the future of our planet)
    Today's youth will suffer from the consequences of climate change, which is what the ancestors left behind.
    ______
    I would also like to share my opinion on something (why not make a special day in the year and call it "International Youth Day"!!)
    Where Shi will be at the top of awesomeness and will be a strong encouragement for them!
    I also have the idea of ​​making a day in all countries to go out as a demonstration in the streets to support the youth on this great idea!
    And we call them "Future Champions"!

    Who bears the greatest responsibility for mitigating climate change? Young people and young adults; Because when Oliveira said that (if they don't do the right thing to the elderly, then the young and the young must do the right thing) we trusted the young and the young, I cannot deny the ability of the young and the young to make a difference in this matter, but why leave the obstacle in front of them? I believe that if we equally and properly distribute the efforts in this case among us as age groups, we will achieve it successfully, since in the case of Oliveira and her friends, the elderly would have been able to keep in touch with the court for the case and if they did it the court would give you priority as well. We cannot leave the obstacle to the youth and the young, that is, the next generation. Young people have other problems, issues and duties that are more important than the third of European countries.The next generation may not be able to limit climate change, so the old, young and and the leaders all young people must provide solutions to limit climate change.

        Tom @ Topical Talk's comment 01 Feb 2022

        Well, there are several ways that young and old can work together, the first way: Young and old should do demonstrations every day like a little man holding a sign that says (WEKE IP!) and they don't work like a woman with her hands folded because her idea is not good The second method: Old people can create associations based on fundraising for climate change cause, young people can create cultural seminars for climate change cause If all people are careful about climate change, young and old can solve the issue easily by finding solutions to the problems that led to the pollution European countries, through the ideas of young people. Even young people have a role in combating climate change. Young people are now adept at spreading any new habits and technologies and are able to adapt and contribute to the fight against climate change.

    I think that those who will come after the governments in these matters will be the youth group and the group is older than them because they have sufficient awareness of the climate issue. The elderly can establish associations based on collecting donations for the climate cause, and the youth group within these associations can conduct educational seminars in order to Climate issue If all the people are cautious about the issue of climate, the European government can easily solve it by finding solutions to the problems that led to climate pollution through the ideas of young people that can contribute to solving this issue and also the European government can educate children through youth work Cartoons, cartoons, or stories that educate children, then raise a conscious generation

    In my opinion, the one who bears the responsibility is the youth and the elderly, because the elderly in their youth did not realize the danger of not caring for the environment, so pollutants accumulated and their damage to the environment, which resulted in negative consequences for the environment. To see it too big, even though it is small in our eyes, thus deteriorates the environment in which we live, and so on

    I said Both are equally responsible

    I said this because I chose the answer C because I believe that protecting the environment and the climate is a collective responsibility, and hands should join hands and cooperate to solve this problem. One hand cannot clap, as the government alone cannot enact laws if it does not follow the behavior of young people. Also, young people alone cannot work to take government decisions without its approval. It is a collective responsibility and everyone must cooperate to get rid of it"

    I said this because Because young people are the builders of the future, and they are the ones who will face these changes, and they will be at the forefront of those affected by climate change because it has an impact on all aspects of their lives and their future. These challenges put young people in the role of resisting climate changes to create a clean future. Because they feel the danger and call for rights, and we do not forget that they are the most vulnerable groups who live amid the dangers of disasters and climatic changes and their impact on them. Perhaps young people in developing countries are among the most affected by climate change. Young people have a long life in order to achieve their goals in order to bring about change to improve the reality of a future that young people aspire to, Reducing climate change will yield a good future for them, their children and all aspects of life."

    l see that older people and young people are responsible for "preservation of life" in the sense that we all part of this planet and everyone of us has a role in protecting it .For example, elder people from their responsibility to monitor the industry sector and minimize the emissions and punishing the vandals, because they have power of money and influence. And young people are responsible for their decision in protecting the earth , so they can use environmental accompanying materials, and calling for a better world.

    Who is responsible for helping to reduce climate change - older or younger people?
    I think that young people have a great responsibility to overcome the problem of climate change.
    Because they are the country's great asset, they represent the country and its future in all respects. The intelligence, skills and practical ability of young people lead the country to the path of development and success, and this means that young people bear this responsibility because they are the basic building blocks of countries. When we care about them and develop their capabilities, they will invent many innovations that It will overcome the problem of climate change. I have great confidence in the youth of the future, but we must take care of them so that our only hope that will light our way will not be disappointed.

      I think you make a really interesting point about young people being the building blocks of society, and in this sense they have the opportunity to make the most difference and therefore responsibility lies with us/them. However do you think that often governments and older people have more authority and so in this sense are able to implement changes more quickly? If so should there be more responsibility on them?

        After reading a lot of comments (I realized that the responsibility will be shared and the same between young and old, because we all made a mistake (which is the problem of climate change) the responsibility will be the same, do you know what is the reason for our delay in finding solutions to the problem of climate change, I think it is our overthinking about who It is he who bears the greatest responsibility. Instead of coherence and cohesion to find solutions, we ask ourselves who bears the greatest responsibility????

        Of course not..... Old and young are two sides of the same coin, they complement each other.
        Older people, for example, can provide advice and experiences from life experiences, and the role of young people is to deliver the message of the elderly.
        Children instill values ​​in them, and we all do the right work and what is best for our society.

    Here's your answer:

    I said Both are equally responsible

    I said this because I say this because both of them have to bear the responsibility of the world. The adults must bear the responsibility. They are the adults, the rulers, the leaders, the experienced owners, the owners of large companies and the biggest exploiters of the environment, and the youth must bear the responsibility of the environment so that they have a lesson in taking responsibility. They are the leaders and pioneers of the future. And its rulers and leaders, and they also have to bear the responsibility for the environment, because they are the ones who will live and remain. As for the adults, many of them may die."

    He added, "They are able to adapt and can quickly adapt their lifestyles and adopt a low-carbon lifestyle and occupational choices.

Those who work in factories or others who work in things that affect the climate are responsible. Man is the one who worked on the destruction of the world, and I am not excluded from That is myself or anyone, we are all responsible, but as long as the government has made promises that it will work on climate change, it must fulfill what prompted it to make a pledge that it cannot fulfill.

They are both responsible because young people pollute the environment and are not responsible, and adults are responsible for not spreading the necessary awareness to them and also to avoid these mistakes in the future Children must be educated from their childhood and strict laws must be put in place for young people, but we give them their freedom, but while preserving the environment and reducing pollution, we must inform them about what is happening.

    Who bears the greatest responsibility for mitigating climate change?
    I will answer it as I see it in real life
    First: When you see an old man throwing a trash bag on the ground every day, what are we going to say to him (Are we going to say there is no problem, young people are responsible for the problem of climate change, and you don't have to do anything, just watch from afar) In your opinion, is this fair? ?
    Young people do, tire, plan and innovate in order to solve the problem of climate change, while the elderly sit and look from afar, I respect your age and that you cannot be like young people, but (you do not know that the problem of climate change is everyone’s fault and not only the fault of young people and that everyone must be interconnected, cohesive and participate If there are solutions to the problem of climate change) in my view I will divide the work between the young and the old.
    Young people: They are the ones who innovate, invent and plan because they have deep and broad thinking and imaginative plans, which are not available to the elderly, and we also know the importance of young people in society, so there is no need to repeat.
    The elderly: only their duty is to encourage young people and take care of them and their abilities through speech and encouragement or support them with money or bring the imaginary innovations of young people that they draw on notebooks into reality, and also their duty to commit to preserving the environment, (We understand that you cannot find solutions to the problem of climate change, but you can Preserving the environment).
    The frankness of your question (Who bears the greatest responsibility for limiting climate change?) is similar to the question (Who is the biggest culprit for the existence of the climate change problem?)

The mistake is everyone’s mistake and the solution will come from everyone and this is the realistic opinion .

    Responsible for mitigating state climate change
    Countries have an obligation to mitigate the adverse effects of climate change by taking the most ambitious measures to prevent or reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the shortest possible time frame. While rich countries must lead the way, both internally and through international cooperation, all countries must take all reasonable steps to reduce emissions as much as they can.

    States must also take all necessary steps to help everyone within their jurisdiction adapt to the foreseeable and inevitable effects of climate change, thus minimizing the impact of climate change on their human rights. This is true regardless of whether the state is responsible for those effects, because states have an obligation to protect people from harm caused by third parties.

    Countries must take steps to tackle climate change as quickly and as humanly as possible. In their efforts to combat climate change, states must not resort to actions that directly or indirectly violate human rights. For example, nature reserves or renewable energy projects should not be established on the lands of indigenous peoples without consulting and obtaining their approval.

    In all measures, states should respect the right to information and participation of all affected persons, as well as their right to access remedies for human rights violations.

    I said Both are responsible but Younger people should be more and older peoples should less than young people.
    I said this because I think both should play their part because if both of them accept their responsibilities and fulfill them fully, there will be a significant reduction in climate change. The responsibilities that lie ahead are to prevent climate change, such as Youths can help stop climate change in their own simple yet purposeful ways. Such as: joining environmental organizations or groups; participating in various governmental, non-governmental, school or community programs and projects against climate change; joining clean-up drives at school or in community; participating in tree planting and go-green activities; garbage picking and recycling initiatives; getting involved in environmental protests and campaigns; using social media like facebook, twitter or instagram in promoting climate change and environmental awareness to the public; limiting the use of plastics; segregating garbage at home and lastly, encouraging our friends, schoolmates and our family to do what we are doing. Older people also have an expert experience in preventing climate change because they are older and have a lifetime of experience but they are weaker than young peoople and are affected very quickly. Older adults are also more likely to have a chronic health condition, such as diabetes, that requires medications for treatment. Some older adults, especially those with disabilities, may also need assistance with daily activities.. so young peolpe should be more responsible to reduce climate change."

    because many people mostly children pollute the enviromment by throwing their rubbish all around the earth and there are now miles and miles of ocean water full of trash because only small percentages of rubbish go to recycling or landfill instead it goes to our ocean. there are tiny fish in the ocean and without them we cant breathe oxygen so don't DUMP RUBBISH!!!!!!!

    I believe that the responsibility lies with us humans, regardless of age. We are the ones who caused this problem and as we caused it to happen, we must unite and cooperate and listen to the opinions of children, youth and adults and the opinions of everyone and preserve the environment as much as possible and avoid things that may cause harm to it, because the earth is our only shelter Which we resort to and with the destruction of the earth, life will end.

    I think that young people are responsible for limiting and spreading awareness of climate change, because young people are the force of change in society and because they are the backbone and foundation of society. How to reduce each person's carbon footprint, and make practical efforts starting from the workshop itself.
    Reliance on technology, gaming, and social media; To integrate more young people into emerging initiatives to protect the environment.
    Organizing events that bring together youth and other stakeholders, ranging from government agencies and civil society organizations to private sector companies concerned with climate issues, in order to give youth a sense of participation and responsibility in decision-making.

    In my opinion, modern technology is primarily responsible for climate change, and after that comes the role of humans, whether young or old, because the more technology advances, helping humans to progress, but it affects a negative role on the environment and thus affects climate change. Therefore, we must return to nature and reduce technology as much as possible. So as not to negatively affect climate change.

    I believe that governments and organizations can reduce climate change because poor countries are the most affected by climate change, although they are the countries least responsible for the crisis, and least able to deal with its consequences. them, and raise awareness of the harms of global warming
