SDG13 – Climate Action
The SAYCCC invites all young people and interested persons to participate in this initiative, which aims at learning about the extent, and monitoring the progress of integrating and undertaking climate action through legislation in South Africa for the benefit of future generations. “Climate change is a common concern of humankind, Parties should, when taking action to address climate change, respect, promote and consider their respective obligations on human rights” … “as well as gender equality, empowerment of women and intergenerational equity” (Paris Agreement).
Intergenerational equity refers to the full, equal and meaningful participation and consideration of youth or young people in all activities, processes and platforms for climate action. Intergenerational equity is an integrated approach, concerning the wellbeing and equity of current and future generations, who most likely will safe difficult living conditions in a changing climate, but who are not responsible for causing them.
The outcome of this initiative is to understand the link between climate policies to human rights and sustainable development, principles of safeguarding the future of our planet; and the plans and budgets, including roles, responsibilities and procedures that have to be adequately considered to respond to climate change.
