Climate Talks - Open Sessions

Climate Talks - Open Sessions

In order to accelerate awareness on the Paris Agreement and fast-track the implementation process of pro-poor LEDs in Kenya’s Nationally Determined Contributions and Green Economy Strategy and Implementation Plan, SusWatch Kenya and its coalition partners organized a climate action talk/dialogue with university students from University of Nairobi and Kenyatta University. The open session dialogue also served as a buildup activity to create momentum ahead of the Africa Climate Week, which was scheduled for 9th-13th April at the United Nations, Nairobi, Kenya.

The climate action talk kicked off on April 6th, 2018 at Kenyatta University under the theme "Climate Action for Sustainable Development Driving Change in Kenya". The forum attracted over 200 students.

Opportunities for young people in fighting climate change.

Innovations on conservation agriculture and accelerating efficiency on renewable energy and technologies

Advocacy and lobbying

 Information management especially social media where a majority of the young generation command a huge presence. The deficit of information online on climate change and environment can be achieved by blogging facts, continuous research and sharing findings and sharing thoughts and perspectives on climate change online.

Writing practical, bankable and scalable proposals that can attract funding.

 Ensuring that their voices and viewpoints are incorporated in the policy-making processes by forming strong groups that will lobby for their inclusion in such processes.
