The year 2023 has now been confirmed to be the hottest in history, thus playing havoc on climate change that has resulted in a substantial increase in natural disasters that were greater in intensity.

What is the role of youth in maintaining a sustainable environment?

From reducing waste and conserving resources to advocating for policies that protect our planet, youth can make a real difference in building a more inclusive and sustainable world. Through their leadership, young people can inspire others to take action and help create a more sustainable world, providing they are armed with accurate information and critical thinking abilities.
