By Rubén Morales Iglesias: More than 2,000 of the Commonwealth’s young leaders and youth-led organizations are calling on their governments “to respect the needs and contributions of the world’s most vulnerable groups, in the lead up to global climate talks in Glasgow in November,” said a Commonwealth press release on Wednesday.

The Commonwealth youths today released a Commonwealth Youth Statement on Climate Change. The statement urges the Commonwealth governments “to include youth, women, the elderly and people with disabilities in decision-making on climate change-related policies”.

“We demand an end to climate inaction. Our generation will have to deal with more frequent and severe climate impacts than ever, making us one of the groups most vulnerable to its impacts,” said the youth statement.

More than 1.5 billion people in the Commonwealth are under 30 years of age.

The youth leaders have put forth seven important recommendations to be considered in the worldwide discussions at the Youth4Climate Summit that is happening this week in Milan, Italy, from 28 to 30 September, said the Commonwealth press release.

“Young people are the true heroes in the fight against climate change. They have demonstrated a tremendous capacity to grasp the reality of the climate crisis and mobilize crucial support for climate action across groups, sectors, and nations,” said Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland in welcoming their proposals.

“Without the contributions and innovations of young people from all Commonwealth regions, the world would not have achieved the progress it has today on climate action. We need them at the table so that their voices can be heard as discussions continue on the development of effective climate policies and strategies.”
