Climate change: continuing people mobilisation and promoting sustainable ways of living

Youth mobilisation for climate
At this event co-organised by CIDSE and Development and Peace, young people from Canada, Cambodia, France and Honduras shared their  experiences and challenges to mobilise for climate justice.

CIDSE is an international family of Catholic social justice organisations, working together to promote justice, harness the power of global solidarity and create transformational change to end poverty and inequalities. We do this by challenging systemic injustice and inequity as well as destruction of nature. We believe in a world where every human being has the right to live in dignity.
