CLIMATE ACTION DAY
17.00 – 19.00, December 13
Red Hall, Youth and Sports Palace, Prishtina
Where is the future generation in Kosovo’s agenda?
Together with representatives of several political parties (PSD, VV, AKR-NISMA, and hopefully few more…) and young people, we will open a debate on the most burning (literally) topic of present and future times: climate change. The debate will be moderated by Jeta Xharra.
So far, 26 countries declared climate emergency. The European Parliament declared climate emergency two weeks ago.
What is the position of Kosovo in the context of climate crisis?
According to the European Green Deal, the EU will cut 55% of their emission by 2030 so it can become carbon neutral by 2050.
What will/should Kosovo do in order to be on the same track?
Gautam Narasimhan, a senior adviser on climate change, energy and environment at Unicef, said: “From hurricanes to droughts to floods to wildfires, the consequences of the climate crisis are all around us, affecting children the most and threatening their health, education, protection and very survival. Children are essential actors in responding to the climate crisis. We owe it to them to put all our efforts behind solutions we know can make a difference.”
How young people see this issue? What do they expect from politicians?
Greta Thunberg said that school strikes have achieved nothing in more than a year of massive protests.
What is the vision on Youth? Kosovo in 2100 or 2050?
How can youth and decision makers cooperate in this challenge?
What should everyone do?
Join us for the discussion!
