Creating spaces for learning, experience sharing, and collaboration for young people working on climate change, peace, and security is important to strengthen advocacy and policy-level collaboration on sustainable peace. It is important to note that the root causes of both the peace and security and climate crises are interconnected. Whether related to intra or inter state conflict, the same challenges posed by our inability to act in full appreciation of our interdependence poses roadblocks to effective policy making in the areas of conflict resolution and climate action.
Convened during the 2022 UN General Assembly High-Level Week, NYC Climate Week, and in observance of the United Nations’ International Day of Peace, this side event brings together representatives from government, UN agencies, civil society, youth peacebuilders, and climate activists to explore the opportunities to advance the climate security nexus with the aim of building sustainable peace.
