The lens on climate crisis that’s missing

How often do you see the meaningful representation of the “rural youth” within the discourse surrounding climate change? Probably in just few occasions and not in ways where we really listen to them and support them in taking local action against climate change

From our own understanding of the space and experience of working and learning from rural communities , In this article we highlight how my colleague and I are alienating the rural communities (probably the ones who are facing the most burnt of climate change) and then have suggested ways by which we can engage them in ways that enable them to vocalize their local issues and take actions in their own capacity.

We have also shed some light on our initiative “Young Climate Leaders” which is an effort to bridge this gap and support our next generation to be conscious of how climate change affects them directly and at the same time are equipped with essential skills and knowledge to be involved in climate positive actions.
