Summary

There is a great lack of awareness about the repercussions of climate change on indigenous communities near test sites and nuclear waste. Examples are the impact of nuclear tests on First Nations in Southwest US; and rising sea levels that threaten the Marshall Islands and the Runit Dome, where the US is storing nuclear waste. To increase understanding and promote action among global leaders, we intend to create a docuseries about these issues along with a youth advocacy network.

Challenge

There are 14,000 nuclear weapons. At the same time, the US President denies the existence of climate change. The Nuclear Armed States are also refusing to adequately address the environmental contamination of nuclear weapons in Asia-Pacific, Central Asia, North America and the Arctic. Indigenous youth have been demanding action. However, their pleas are falling on dead ears amongst leaders. Tools for mobilization are missing. What the youth need are direct pathways to engage with leaders.

Solution

We will create a global youth network that will work with affected communities and engage in UN advocacy. As part of this solution, we will form partnerships with local networks and encourage youth activists to co-produce a docuseries consisting of 3-4 episodes to drive online awareness and engagement. In addition, youth will be invited to attend webinars, featuring legal experts and activists, who will provide them with tools to effectively communicate with the leaders in their communities.

Long-Term Impact

As a long-term impact, we will create a network for youth from affected communities. The participants will meet via zoom calls once a month to check in and discuss what we are doing in our communities and how we are engaging with community leaders. The participants will be invited to attend UN events, where they will share their views with international leaders and hold them accountable for their actions. Ultimately, advocacy, activism, and accountability will help to reverse the trend.
