[Ambassador report] Thematic Report - Youth and the Environment

The reason why young people should be part of solving the climate problem is that young people have to face the future world. If the climate problem is not solved, then the impact will be on the environment in which young people will exist in the future. In this way, our life will coexist with the disintegration of icebergs, rising average temperatures, and the demise of biodiversity. However, today's young people's solution to the climate problem is sometimes a matter of heart-warming, but it also has no chance to participate in related affairs. So what can be done to enable young people to participate?

 

We can take the example of what happened in the country of Taiwan. In Taiwan, the group that young people can participate in on climate change issues is 350 Taiwan, TWYCC (Taiwan Youth Climate Coalition), and the Green Citizen Action Coalition. These three organizations can participate in environmental protection projects, as well as cross-border activities and future renewable energy allocation plans. Not to mention Fridays for Future, a Swedish-initiated cross-border event. At the time of September 20th, Taiwan’s environmental groups, led by young people in counties and cities, will participate, as if they were from the actions of young people. Promote climate change prevention and control.

 

As for how young people can participate in more climate change prevention and control issues? 350 Taiwan's campus divestment is the initiative that young people can take to school during their school days. The main appeal is the school fund used by the school. It can be used in the investment of renewable energy industry rather than the existing fossil fuel industry, thereby reducing investment and linkages to the fossil industry. Nearly 150 universities are implemented. In the United States, it was successfully withdrawn from Columbia University, Georgetown University, Johns Hopkins University, Stanford University, University of Washington, and Yale University. Europe is King's College London, London School of Economics, Lund University, Oxford University, University of Cambridge, and University College London. Taiwan is currently established by the Taiwan University to continue the promotion of campus divestment, while other colleges and universities can do the same.

 

Finally, why is the project dedicated to the TUNZA Eco-generation because I has a 350T Taiwan energy transformation blueprint project to learn and produce future plans for renewable energy use in the country. I has also served as a regional ambassador for the 22nd TUNZA Eco-generation, so the overcoming of climate issues has long been a part of life.

 

And I think that the solution to the climate problem is not only to start from the non-use of plastic products, but to create a new industrial chain from the source of energy. Because of the industrial structure constructed by the use of fossil fuels, it is bound to lose its existing influence in the era after the depletion of fossil fuels. And if we start using renewable energy and related electric equipment now, then even if fossil fuels become a small part of the history of energy, we will not suffer from the depletion of energy.

 

I think that in this era, what young people need is to use the concept of recycling economy products as the basis of life. If all the products can return to nature, then there will be no environmental damage. We come to this world with nothing, and when we leave, we will not bring any trouble to this world.

    Hello Yu Hsuan!
    Well written report about the responsiblity of youth and some great organizations working for the environment.
    I totally agree with you that the damaged earth shouldn't be the reality the youth will face with the future generation.
    We should thank this planet for providing us such beautiful nature.
    I hope the actions started from Taiwan bring huge environmental impact to many other nations.
    Thank you for the well-explained report!
