Building Radical Collaborations for Just, Climate-resilient Futures
Organizer: YCL / IIED *this session is part of the Development & Climate Days
|Unusual, unexpected, and often risky connections are needed to spark transformative climate action. Yet, partnerships can be demanding, difficult to find the right fit, and sometimes provide more obstacles than opportunities. As youth leading climate action in our communities, we ask: how might we build together the just, climate-resilient futures that we deserve? In this hands-on session, we will explore how to foster effective and meaningful partnerships that centre climate justice. By hosting time and space for these considerations, we hope to codesign principles which incorporate risk and resilience, and equip participants with a map that may guide their radical collaborations beyond the digital workshop.
