Do you know what climate is? Well, if you didn't know that, climate is the average measurement of the temperature, wind, humidity, snow, and rain of a place over the years.
Climate crisis looming!!
How are our societies around the world affected?
Science clearly shows the increasing frequency and severity of Al-Hilla weather phenomena
Besides, it shows a lack of knowledge.
Climate affects different people in different ways, and even if emissions stop today, climate change will affect the lives and livelihoods of young people now and in the future. This is particularly the case in low-income countries with rapid population growth where large numbers of young people are concentrated.
Young people around the world are the guardians of the future and therefore have an important role in shaping that future.
What are the challenges of taking action on climate?
Barriers faced by young people in participating.
In all regions, young people continue to inspire the world through their passion and creative innovation in tackling the climate crisis. However, there are barriers that prevent young people from taking climate action as much as possible. These are four barriers, including:
Sense of urgency, knowledge, technological tools and voice.
A sense of urgency: For many young people, there is a great sense of urgency when it comes to wanting to tackle climatic times, but others lack awareness of the state of the climate
Feeling the need to take urgent action now and immediately.
Access to information and knowledge: In many places there is not enough education and training on climate change. Furthermore, many schools are not required to include climate change in their political curricula.
Enabling environment i.e. Technological tools: once young people are ready to take action, they lack a soft environment to translate their energies and ideas into action.
What is the role of youth in working to prevent climate change?
Youth have a big role in this because there are a lot of youth movements, and it is a broad and continuous network to provide a great opportunity to affect climate change on the ground and also bring new ideas for young people, knowledge and technological know- how to influence this crisis.
We all know that climate change exists today and that young people will be the most harmful in the future. However, young people are certainly not passive victims of climate change.
In the past few years, there has been an important shift in how young people are viewed. Millions of young people around the world have expressed their concerns about climate change. Young people are being listened to more than ever.
in my opinion:
Young people have attracted public attention and greater demand than others for climate change. Indeed, youth participation is not only young men and women who are critical to global climate action, and there is a significant and significant opportunity for young people to participate in it.
What does the youth bring?
Energy, passion and creative solutions.
Social movements through new forms of advocacy.
Access to unique tools and technological innovation.
Understanding the effects of climate change:
In my opinion, in order to tackle the climate crisis, we must first understand it, because raising awareness through education is the foundation upon which the key roles of youth are built:
Educating themselves to take meaning climate action Young people must first enhance their ability to understand climate change and the risks involved in climate change.
Also, educate others. When young people have a good understanding of climate change and its effects, they can inspire and educate young people and other people in their communities and countries globally to take action to adapt to climate change.
In my view, young people can make a significant contribution to reducing the climate crisis that surrounds them.
Also, by considering climate-related threats and impacts through a holistic approach, climate action can be made an important factor contributing to crisis risk reduction.
What is your view on young people? Is their participation in solving the climate crisis important and have an impact? or not? And why?
