What You Can Do to Support the Climate

HOW TO OVERCOME CHALLENGES
Founder & CEO, Speakers Institute Australia
REFORESTATION OF INDIGENOUS SPECIES
Lost forests mean increased carbon emissions, diminished biodiversity, and the degradation of land. The key to preserving the rainforests, preventing climate change, and protecting animal and plant species, is to regrow and reconnect fragmented forests. How? By planting thousands of indigenous tree species to protect the environment and reduce CO2. In order to advance the UN SDG 15, Life on Land, and sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, and halt biodiversity loss.
Delegates will learn reforestation techniques on implementing practical, proven methods of forest restoration in order to mitigate the damages resulting from deforestation and forest degradation. They will plant indigenous tree species that will increase the forest density and ensure that animal communities are properly sustained.
MANGROVES ISLAND CONSERVATION
Mangroves can be lost to coastal development, aquaculture, pollution, and other human activities. Yet, mangroves are highly productive ecosystems providing numerous goods and services that include support of fisheries, maintenance and improvement of water quality, coastal protection, and carbon sequestration. Therefore, the restoration and conservation of mangrove forests are vital. In taking action towards the UN SDG 14, Life below Water, mangroves planting aids in supporting the livelihoods of coastal communities, sustainable fisheries, resilience to the impacts of climate change, and sequestering atmospheric CO2.
At Khlong Khon, Mangrove Forest Conservation Centre in Samut Songkhram, delegates will plant mangroves on the island, which is inhabited by monkeys. Khlong Khlon hosts one of the largest mangrove forests in Thailand. With over 2,000 rai of mangrove forest, participants will take action to protect the biodiversity of the forest.
MARINE AND COASTAL CONSERVATION
Our oceans are in a perilous state. In many parts of the world, marine species are facing extinction, ecosystems are deteriorating and ocean governance is still highly fragmented. With oceans being our planet’s life support that regulates the global climate system, conserving marine and coastal resources helps to mitigate the impacts of climate change. In helping achieve the UN SDG 14, Life below Water, we ensure the conservation and sustainable use of the world’s ocean.
Delegates will learn restoration techniques to protect corals and marine lives. They will be divided into groups of seven to construct the bamboo pipes that provide a stable growing area for corals, and habitat for fishes and all the other organisms found on a natural reef. The Navy Seal from the Royal Thai Army will then dive into the ocean to place the structures onto the sea bed. Participants will support the work being done to regenerate battered reefs and improve the protection of vulnerable coastlines.
Wastewater resulting from human activities is discharged into rivers without any pollution removal. Due to the rapid deterioration of our rivers, which provide habitat to a wide range of animal and plant species, these species are critically endangered. Rivers are also an important source of water. In fact, rivers are no mere flowing bodies of water because they are “life-giving”. In advancing the UN SDG 6, Clean Water and Sanitation, cleaning the river ensure access to safe water sources.
Delegates will kayak in order to clean the river. They will gain first-hand experience in understanding the effects that rubbish causes on the local communities which are surrounded by water. They will collect rubbish to safeguard the aquatic fauna and flora, and help the community to benefit socially and economically from a clean river.

Start Your Own Climate Initiative
BY CRISTIAN FLEMING
“Are you an advocate for climate change action but are unsure where to start? The challenges and complexity surrounding climate change surely make young people feel weak and helpless to be able to do anything positive. How can you begin a climate initiative that is impactful and sustainable?
This workshop will equip you with hands-on ways on how you can take small steps to begin your journey as a climate advocate. There are several ways you can get involved, from running online awareness campaigns to offering practical help like beach clean-up, organising a tree-planting activity and other go-green activities, such as garbage picking and recycling, or hosting a vegan meal with your friends. Start by initiating a climate project that is close to your heart. Transform it into a collective engagement that brings change.”
Leading a Climate Action
BY JANICE LEONG
“Do you see climate action as a battle for the future of our planet? How can you apply your knowledge, skills, and passion to do something to protect the planet? For decades, young people have been crucial in focusing global attention on the urgent need to act on climate change. Activism or vigorous campaigning is needed to bring about political or social changes. This workshop will educate you on essential campaigning skills that will advance a greener, more sustainable planet – from understanding the environment and natural resource economics to policy implementation, strategic planning, change management, and fund-raising.”
Building a Movement in the Climate Emergency
BY KIM SOLOMON
“Are you ready to join a movement of like-minded young leaders committed to climate action? We know the uncertainty this involves. How to connect? How to overcome the barriers to joining a climate movement that aligns with your passion and beliefs?
The truth is social movements calling for climate action and climate justice have reached exciting new levels of visibility in recent years. Young people are crucial in focusing global attention on the urgent need to act on climate change. Global youth climate movements have been a wake-up call for leaders, proving that young people can no longer be dismissed when it comes to paving the way forward.
This workshop will empower you to know where to find and how to commit to a sustainable movement in the fight for climate change.”
Communicating Climate Change Effectively
BY FELIPE QUEIPO
“Did you know that the way we talk about climate change affects the way people think about it? Communicating climate change is getting increasingly complicated. If you already consider climate change a pressing issue, you might not think carefully about the way you talk about it. Regardless of how you discuss it, you may already think of global warming as a problem.
For scientific evidence to shape people’s actions, like recycling and voting on policies, it is crucial that science be communicated to the public effectively. Social scientists have increasingly studied the discipline of science communication to better understand what does and does not work for a discussion of different scientific topics. This workshop will enable you to be a better communicator as a Humanitarian Affairs Green Ambassador.”

Far too often, young people are led to believe they lack the tools to impact change. We are told we lack experience, wisdom and sense. We are made to feel like the only ones who see a system that needs re-evaluating, whilst our opinions are side-lined and undermined.
But we are not wrong, and we are not alone. Our collective voice – the voice of young people – has helped turn the tide in what may be the most crucial threat our species had ever faced; it is only the beginning of an uphill effort. The Green Summit is an opportunity to come together in person and prove that young people contain the skills to impact change;
it is an opportunity to learn crucial information in the fight against the climate crisis, as well as to directly help communities arm themselves in the battle through a series of practical workshops.
Young people have a right to be concerned about the climate crisis. Young people have the tools to make a difference. And young people will empower one another to enact change.
