Venue: Action Hub, Persada Johor International Convention Centre
At this time of generational transition and perennial environmental challenges, it is vital to provide platforms for Indigenous youth leaders to participate in more meaningful ways in processes that may affect their future. In Southeast Asia, a region with diverse Indigenous cultures and ecological contexts, the need for Indigenous youth involvement in climate action is especially relevant.
This Indigenous youth-led action hub is a platform for Indigenous youth from across Southeast Asia to share their unique perspectives and key recommendations for inclusive and participatory climate change adaptation and landscape governance that resonates with the needs and contexts of Southeast Asian Indigenous youth and communities.
The action hub will also highlight challenges and opportunities from the perspective of youth, especially young women and girls, in securing their land/territories, organizing gender-responsive youth initiatives, and managing their natural resources using their Indigenous knowledge systems and practices.
