From the beginning of 2022, the Latvian Platform for Development Cooperation (LAPAS) has been actively operating its initiative factory for young activists RŪPnīca. So far, the participants have met experts and specialists from different fields in sustainable forestry and worked to improve their debating and civic activism skills.
Autumn is harvest time also for RŪPnīca youngsters. They have started their own campaigns in their local communities (for example, orientation in the forest, game nights, and discussions). The campaign’s title is #JauniesiParKlimatu (YouthForClimate), and throughout the autumn and winter, numerous activities will take place in Latvia.
The youth campaign is about climate change and the problems caused by it because the youth identified these as vital topics. In the campaign, we highlight that every vote has weight, but only by working together can we achieve bigger goals – especially when considering climate and sustainability.
If you also care about the climate, you can be part of the campaign by signing this petition and work together with us for systemic change and climate justice.
This activity was financed by the EEZ and Norwegian grant program “Active Citizen Fund” and European Union’s DEAR program.
