Youth environmental movements, actively raising their voices around the world, send a clear message: the young generations are not only environmentally-conscious, but also determined to defend their rights and preserve the only planet we have. Their call expresses the need to recognise the many links between a safe, clean, healthy and sustainable environment and children’s right to be heard and participate.
How can we then build on these movements and recognise children as direct agents of change? How can climate action be organised, sustained and deployed in a way that upholds children’s rights and the effective participation of children?
By speaking to children’s rights experts, environment specialists and young climate activists, this MOOC will examine concepts, standards and practices of child participation in environmental matters.
