2nd ECO-WEEK - November 2020 - Climate Justice
In November 2020 we celebrated our second ECO-WEEK focused on Climate Justice and Change.
The aim of this week was to inform young people on the topic of Climate Justice, equip them with skills and knowledge on how they can take action at an individual practical level and at local policy level.
During this week young activists shared their stories on how they have taken action and made a positive impact in their communities.
This ECO-WEEK was in collaboration with ECO-UNESCO’s Youth Climate Justice Programme.
