The current global climate movement shows that more and more young people pay attention to the causes and consequences of climate change and want to be engaged in shaping their future. The European-wide project #ClimateOfChange focuses the role of climate change in the context of global migration movements and points out how individuals can act and participate in sustainable development.
The aim of the project is to strengthen a deeper awareness and understanding of the connections between climate change and migration and to establish a link between the global and individual actions and impacts.
Therefore, finep and its EU partners are developing teaching and learning materials that will be used as a basis for debating competitions at schools and universities. Through their participation in the competitions, young pupils and students are actively and participatively involved in the culture of debate on the topic of climate-induced migration and are supported in their development-policy commitment to be part of a sustainable development. The EU project is accompanied by a European-wide communication campaign and intensive advocacy work on development policy.
