    Learning from COVID19, a sister disaster to #ClimateChange.

    Learning from COVID19, a sister disaster to #ClimateChange.

    “We are not a bunch of high school students who come to the room, read a little poetry, dance around, eat some food and they’ll say we had the young people there.”

    Deon cracked me up when he used that sentence to describe youth tokenization in global climate change conferences. That aside, it was a very enlightening conversation as we discuss lessons from COVID19 and how it can change the global response to Climate Change.

    According to Deon, Youth engagement in Climate politics is the least listened to and the least understood component of climate politics. You must also agree with him, young people have transformative ideas to leapfrog different sectors of our economy.

    “We don’t need now to pray for the Amazon; we need now to act. if you think you can do anything in your power to help the situation, please do it, let’s make the world aware.” - Paloma Costa.

    This is a very emotional episode of the Climate Talk Podcast, – perhaps the most emotional episode yet. The reason isn’t far-fetched, it has not been the best of times for us on the planet. Days in, weeks out, we have seen the amazon rainforest burn into ashes, thousands of fauna and flora species have fast disappeared, hundreds of indigenous people have been displaced and the damage seems beyond repair.

    On this episode of the Climate Talk Podcast, my guest is Paloma Costa, a 27-year old Climate Activist in Brasilia, the biggest city of Brazil. Paloma coordinates the working group of Engajamundo, a youth led Climate Change focused organization in Brazil she is also the co-founder Ciclimáticos, a collective of bicycle activists documenting the impacts of climate changes in Brazil.

    You’ll also find out:


    - Outcomes of the Latin America Climate Week.

    - Limitations of youths and indigenous people in Climate Action.

    - How young people are urging government to work with data.
