Indigenous Youth Declaration for Climate Justice
As Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people we are a part of the oldest continuing culture in the world and have lived in harmony with our land for generations. Right now climate change is disproportionately affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We are experiencing rising sea levels in the Torres Strait, the loss of sacred country, diminishing food and water accessibility.
We are calling for climate justice now – this means moving beyond dirty fossil fuels and transitioning to safe, clean, renewable energy.
We are calling on you to stand with us in solidarity for a just and safe climate
