Care About Climate

Recording/Webinar | All Ages

The Paris Agreement provides a framework for how countries are supposed to work together to stay below 1.5 degrees Celsius warming on average. Each country makes a pledge to commiting to its fair share of climate action. Our international, youth-led coalition pushed for ambitious targets and climate justice and equity leading up to the US climate pledge (Biden Leaders Summit on Climate), as well as in pledges around the world. It is important that we understand what decisions are being made and have the resources to demand just, equitable solutions from our leaders. We want participants to understand the international policy conversations around climate change that are happening, deepen knowledge around the role that the US plays in the conversation, and identify ways to build collective power on just implementation of the US pledge.
