Youth & Philanthropy World Café: It’s Time to Fund Youth Movements
Less than 0.76% of climate funding goes to youth-led climate justice initiatives, a new report by members of the UNSG’s Youth Advisory Group on Climate (YAG) has found. As a follow-up to the CJ-JT convened event during NY Climate Week, we worked with YAG members to host this dialogue at the Youth Pavilion to launch the report and explore how youth and philanthropic funders can work together to mobilize millions for youth-led climate justice movements. The event was hosted by UN YAG member, Nathan Metenier and CJ-JT Fellow and UN YAG member, Archana Soreng, It was moderated by CJ-JT Fellow and UN YAG member, Paloma Costa with participation from special guests, Kate Hampton CEO, Children Investment Fund Foundation, Ida Kenny Le Duc, Executive Director for Strategic Partnerships, European Climate Foundation and Farhana Yamin, Coordinator, Climate Justice – Justice Transition Donor Collaborative.
