50 YOUNG PEOPLE FROM FRANCE AND RUSSIA CAME TOGETHER TO WRITE 20 PROPOSALS TO THEIR GOVERNMENTS FOR THE NEXT 20 YEARS ON BIODIVERSITY, ENERGY, CITIES AND THE ARCTIC.
Climate change is one of the biggest global challenges today. The effects of climate change span the physical environment, ecosystems and human societies. We can feel them everywhere in the world, including both Russia and France. Today’s youth is going to bear the consequences and live through the challenges of climate adaptation in the nearest future, however, we can still reverse the worst-case scenario. This is why 50 young people from Russia and France came together in the Franco-Russian Youth Dialogue on Climate Change to develop proposals to their governments together and empower each other to become voices of their generation.
They consolidated the efforts to propose actions tackle the climate emergency and to raise concerns to the political actors in their countries.
The work on the Policy Paper took place between November 2020 and June 2021 as a part of the Franco-Russian Dialogue on Climate Change, supported by the Trianon Dialogue Program. The process was organised by a team of dedicated volunteers: Konstantin Blondeau, Marion Cousinie, Sofya Epifantseva, Viktoria Kosmatova, Juan Antonio Pérez and Tetiana Stadnyk. A big thank you to everyone who contributed and made this project a reality!
