Date From : Feb 12, 2023To : Feb 14, 2023 Time: 10:00 AM
Second In-Person Convening New Delhi, India

Observer Research Foundation (ORF) in partnership with Gen-Lab, Institute for Strategic and Socio Economic Research, Sri Lanka Development Journalist Forum and supported by the United States Department of State is organising the second convening of the Climate Action Champions Network (CACN) on February 12th to 14th, 2023, in New Delhi.

The network comprises over 100 cohorts from five south Asia countries, (Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Sri Lanka and India) to build a community on sustainable development and climate action.

Climate-based challenges in South Asia cuts across borders and require a joint approach by governments, academia and civil society in the region. As one of the world’s youngest regions, future success or failure in combating the multi-dimensional challenges caused by climate change will rest on the shoulders of South Asia’s numerous aspirational youth, who must take the lead in shaping public debate and policy on climate change. CACN thus takes one step forward in the inclusion of young leaders, by giving a central role to their voices, ideas and creativity to respond to the multi-faceted risks posed by climate change. Through multiple dynamic formats, including panel discussions, simulation exercise workshops and other activities, the two and half days convening will aim to find recommendations, solutions and ideas in the effort of mitigating climate change as well as building climate resilience within systems and communities in the region.
