This is a module of the Global Leadership Youth Program, open to students in Grades 8 – 12. For more information about GLYP Summer ’21, click here.
Are we entitled to a healthy planet? A national youth coalition is suing the U.S. government for its outsized role in the climate crisis thereby threatening their constitutional rights. Young people don’t carry the blame for the worst of our climate catastrophes, yet their voices are increasingly calling for action. To surpass the 2015 Paris Agreement targets, the world must collectively tackle this issue, but barriers remain including economic concerns, cultural and societal norms, and the United States’ shaky global leadership. What can young people do today to counteract damage already done and ensure a sustainable future? In this module, we will tackle the same questions that global climate leaders are asking as they prepare for this November’s United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26). We will also explore how to mobilize the remarkable will of youth climate advocates.
