San Diego Diplomacy Council: The Global Leadership Youth Program (Grades 9-12) Module 4: Climate Action: How to Keep 1.5 Alive

Since 1995, global leaders have met 26 times in an attempt to mitigate climate change. While some are lauding the global dedication to sustainable progress and longevity of the planet, others are lamenting the lack of aggressive goals and universal commitments. On the road to COP 27, three things are clear: First, change is non-negotiable. Second, action needs to be taken—and fast—to keep the promise alive of limiting global warming temperatures to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Third, the planet’s biggest advocates are not members of parliament, cabinet leaders nor CEOs; they are sitting in classrooms around the world. In this module, students learn about the important role we all have to play in ensuring a healthy planet. Greta Thunberg has made the stakes very clear to all of us: “You must take action. You must do the impossible. Because giving up is never an option.”

July 25–29
8:30–11 a.m.
