To celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the Sustainable Development Goals, we are delighted to be joining the Youth Climate Justice Challenge with five other youth organisations.
Our goal is to engage, educate and empower young people to take action on climate justice! They will raise awareness of Climate Justice through their own Action Projects and ECO challenges and through dialogue with their community leaders and local policymakers.
Young people will then have the incredible opportunity to present their finished projects in November, during our Youth Climate Justice ECO-Week and will get to showcase their work at the DCYA Outcomes conference!
The Youth Climate Justice Challenge is led by EcoUnesco, in partnership with SpuntOut.ie, Young Irish Filmmakers, No Name Club, Irish Girl Guides, and The Girls’ Brigade Ireland.
Speaking about the launch of this project, our Chairperson Gillian Lesware said “The Girls’ Brigade Ireland are excited to be a part of this initiative. Around the world, girls and young women are disproportionately affected by the impacts of climate change. This is why it is so important for young people to be educated, supported and encouraged to take action on Climate Justice. We know that our members are passionate about climate justice and we look forward to supporting them in their action projects.”
