Commonwealth Youth Climate Action Challenge 2022

Commonwealth Youth Climate Action Challenge

Applications are open for the Commonwealth Youth Climate Action Challenge 2022. In collaboration with Youth Climate Change Network, the Commonwealth Secretary-General launched this global competition to empower, inspire, motivate and reward young individuals taking action. This Youth Lead SDG 14 action challenge will select three young activists and reward them with £1,000 to appreciate and support their work towards the fourteen sustainable development goals.

Through this international challenge, young people can document and share their efforts towards the realization of SDG14 with Commonwealth Secretariat and social media to avail the opportunity to win one of the three prizes. Young people between 18 to 30 years old from commonwealth countries can enter this competition.

The fourteenth sustainable development goal emphasizes the importance of conserving and sustainability of sea, ocean and marine resources for the sustainability of the planet. Climate change is a massive threat in general to the environment of the earth, particularly to the Commonwealth countries. Almost 90% of commonwealth countries are located on coastlines, which makes them prone to danger. Therefore, youth action on climate change is important for the safety of future generations of commonwealth countries.

CYCN is a network of young individuals working to address climate-related issues and their widespread effects. This challenge was launched during an intergenerational dialogue event of COP27. According to Rt Hon Patricia Scotland KC, this competition will rightly give a platform to efforts that deserve to be seen and applauded by populations, leaders and change-makers worldwide.
