Challenge

Vietnam is among the nine most vulnerable nations to climate change (IPCC, 2018). By 2050, the southern area comprising the Mekong Delta and Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) will be submerged due to sea-level rising, causing a humanitarian crisis on a vast scale. In order to mitigate the problem, youth mobilization and engagement is crucial as they represent 23 percent of the population and one of the main driving forces in implementing the NDC targets.

Solution

To build stronger social consensus to champion RE, in the camp we will strive to #build capacity (campaigning skillsets: community organizing, communications and project management) for the local young climate activists who will carry out the campaigns in communities affected by climate change #provide local young activists with tools and tactics to strategically fight climate change in their provinces #build a network of campaigners in the south.

Long-Term Impact

The follow-up campaigns are expected to include but not limited to training, workshop, community gathering for the local kids/youth to understand the risks that they are facing, like land salinization and health impacts. To build the bottom-up voices to urge the government to adopt policies to mitigate climate change and meet their NDC targets; therefore participants of the camp will be the change agents to further amplify the message of climate action in Vietnam.
