One of the key goals of the international climate movement is for our planet to not surpass a global temperature rise greater than 1.5 degrees celsius. For that to happen, action is required at all levels – global, national, local, community, and individual. But how can individuals get started? How can individuals continue and scale their action efforts? At this webinar, you will gain a deeper understanding of the youth climate movement, opportunities for getting involved in the movement, how to identify problems and solutions, and the process for creating, implementing, and scaling action plans. We will also discuss challenges young people face in trying to act on climate and some solutions to address those challenges.
