Global Climate Consultation - World YMCA
Our planet is facing an unprecedented emergency, with billions at risk because of climate change. Ecosystems are being destroyed, people are being displaced and natural disasters are happening at a larger scale than ever before. As a movement spanning all continents, we cannot stand idle.
As such, the World YMCA is preparing a Position Paper on Climate Change, which will help shape how the Movement sees this issue and will lay out relevant proposals. This will be the first step of a broader strategic direction, and further on a more detailed Policy Paper will be developed, together with an action plan.
Join us in shaping the YMCA's global position on climate change, in a spirit of collaboration and sharing! Your contribution, experience and knowledge will help make the YMCA position more relevant and closer to the grassroots reality.
Please submit your answers by March 15.
