From LOCAL to GLOBAL: Strengthening, networking and capacity building of youth-led activities for the right to a clean and healthy environment

The climate crisis is the crucial human rights challenge of this era and is already having a devastating impact on the well-being of youths, who are not experiencing the effects of climate change and related environmental degradation in the same way as adults are. The proportion of youths in the total population is above average in South Asia. They are particularly affected by the impacts of climate change, especially through food and water insecurity and a polluted environment. At the same time, they are the future decision-makers and key players when it comes to climate protection measures. However, youths in India face various obstacles that prevent them from engaging in climate action: this includes lack of access, knowledge, capacity, and resources. They are also excluded from policy-making processes. Youths need to be recognized and listened to as agents of change at the local, national, and regional levels so that they can offer solutions to secure their own rights and collectively promote sustainable development for themselves, their communities, and societies across South Asia.

The “From LOCAL to GLOBAL: Strengthening, networking and capacity building of youth-led activities for the right to a clean and healthy environment” project supported by BMZ federal Ministry for Economic Corporation and Development (Germany) was initiated to further strengthen the efforts of young environmental leaders. The project helps young people to streamline their actions under three major strategies – Knowledge, Action and Influencing Policies.

From Local to Global project is currently active in 13 states of India and as a partner ParyavaranMitra is implementing this project in 4 states namely Gujarat, Maharastra, Madhya Pradesh and Chhatisgarh with support from local civil society organizations.
