ASEAN Study Visit “Learning Cities: Drivers for Youth Participation in Climate Change Governance”
How does meaningful youth participation in Climate Change & Environmental Governance look like?
How can Learning City tackle the climate crisis and actively engage & collaborate with young people?
How can greater youth participation in policy making and implementation towards multilevel Climate Change & Environmental Governance be ensured?
The Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) invited 21 Youth Leaders from ASEAN to join a 10-day Study Visit on “Learning Cities: Drivers for Youth Participation in Climate Change Governance” in Bangkok, Thailand; and Manila, the Philippines from 6-16 November 2022. The project focused on the role of ASEAN cities in tackling the climate crisis, in particular through the engagement and collaboration with young people.
With stopovers in these two capitals, participants learned about existing structures and processes of policy making & implementation in the field of Climate Change & Environment (CC&E), analysed multilevel governance approaches from the municipal to the global level, and discussed how youth participation can be enhanced in these fields for greater impact.
