In our last update, we shared about our growing multidisciplinary team. Our research has focused on the understanding of dignity in international law. We recently partnered with global law firm King Wood & Mallesons to expand this legal research to look at specific countries in each continent to better understand variability in defining this term. Additionally, in the next few months, we will be launching virtual convenings with Indigenous climate activists to co-design legal frameworks that best protect communities on the frontlines. Our climate science and artificial intelligence experts have been exploring predictive modeling from the California wildfires and wider U.S. climate impacts to consider how we can apply a human rights lens.
Last month, we were also invited to present at the International Development Young Professionals TedX-style Talks event to share about the project. Watch the short talk here.
Youth + Climate Justice Project Mentors
With the Micronesia Climate Change Alliance (MCCA), we have been developing the curriculum for our virtual climate justice and human rights training program and specifically exploring the intersection of militarization, human rights, and climate change. MCCA has also brought on 10 project mentors from across the Micronesian region to help us develop the program and to eventually connect with participants and help them with their micro-projects. Project mentors will provide valuable insights and be additional support in the community for the young leaders in the program.
