British Council hosts Youth and Climate 2024: Towards Creative Green Economy and Climate Action

The British Council kicked off the Youth and Climate 2024: Towards Creative Green Economy and Climate Action event on June 3. The event has been organised with the objective of bringing together stakeholders from diverse backgrounds to explore the intersection of the creative green economy and youth leadership in climate action. The event will continue until June 10.

Through a series of activities, the participants engaged in conversations to discuss climate change-related challenges and opportunities. The program provided a platform to share how youth through innovation, advocacy, and action – can respond to the climate emergency.

In collaboration with a consortium of UK and Nepal partners, the council organized a one-day symposium on the creative green economy and climate action, an interactive talk program on material culture, and workshops and masterclasses for students and creative professionals.

A week-long exhibition featuring innovative green projects is still open until June 10 at Taragaon Next, Boudha. Entry is free.

The activities brought together thought leaders, artists, activists, community members, academicians, educators, and youth innovators to explore creativity, entrepreneurship, and environmental sustainability contributing to a greener future.

Rob Fenn, British Ambassador to Nepal, in his opening remarks, said, “Youth and climate change are the best two words to refresh the relationship between the UK and Nepal. It is an area where we can bring the youth of both countries together as this is the common issue faced by youth from both countries.”

Similarly, Helen Silvester, Regional Director, South Asia, British Council, at the opening of the symposium, said, “Today, as we come together to explore the domain of the creative green economy and the pivotal role of youth leadership in climate action, let us remember that creativity and innovation are powerful catalysts for sustainable development.”

Marking the program, the British Council also launched the research report on the topic—Study on Nepalese Youth and Climate Action – Perceptions, Aspirations, and Understandings.

The research report assesses young people’s understanding of climate change and other global challenges and their readiness for leadership in climate action. The study provides evidence-based recommendations for enhancing youth engagement in climate initiatives in Nepal.
