To create a global call to action for young people to become involved within the politics of the climate crisis.
To ensure that the youth voice is heard by those in power.
To empower young people to document the movement, creating a wealth of citizen journalists that will hold decision makers accountable.
We will launch a Global Screenings initiative to galvanize the youth climate movement. Crucially providing the historical context for where this generation of climate activists has come from and inspire them to take charge. Screening will be accompanied by detailed discussions and workshops
We will screen the film as part of the UN Climate Week (NYC, US) in Sep and COP 25 (Santiago, Chile) in Dec as part of a coordinated events plan to engage senior stakeholders around the climate crisis.
Crucial to this will be the amplification of the youth voice within these environments on panel conversations and Q&A's to support the Green New Deal.
A crucial part of Youth Unstoppable is the power of citizen journalism. We want to provide media and communications training to young activists in order to escalate the conversation around the climate crisis.
In addition to screening events, a resource kit will be developed, and equipment provided for new voices to document their journey. Both in developed and developing nations most affected by climate change.
