Climate change is one of the biggest threats facing the world today. The UAE is classified among the categories of countries with the highest rate of vulnerability to the potential impacts of climate change in the world. This will result in warmer weather, less precipitation, droughts, higher sea levels, and more storms.
This year there will be the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26 – Glasgow 1-12 November) a summit that will bring parties together to accelerate action towards reducing climate impact. There will also be a youth summit called Pre-COP26 in Milan (30 Sept – 2 October). The British Council and DCL Consultants believe all sections of the community should have a voice and the right to have that voice heard. Especially young people, who will inherit the future! We know that the solutions to any communities’ challenges must come from within that community.
The British Council and DCL Consortium believe young people who will inherit the future should have a voice and the right to have that voice heard. We are creating a focus group to understand how young people in the UAE feel about climate change and the action being taken by governments and global leaders. The focus group is under the supervision of the COP 26 Global Youth Letter on Young People, Cultural Relations, and Climate Action project. COP 26 Global Youth Letter aims to reach 500 youth people to join the UAE focus group. Focus Groups – Hyper voice Cop26
