    The three-day event will connect youth to relevant stakeholders to drive climate action and empower them to achieve sustainable development goals. The aim is to create ‘Youth Voices’ that will lead to commitments, innovative solutions, and create a multiplier effect for low carbon sustainable development, and through focussed deliberations.

    Lauding TERI SAS and Dalmia Cement for organizing Climate Jamboree Sh. Suresh Prabhu, Union Minister for Commerce and Industry, Govt. of India said, “Climate Change is a great leveller and will impact everyone in the world. Those who have no capacity to cope with it will be the worst sufferers. Today India is in a situation where like the rest of the world, we are facing its impact too. But unlike rich countries, we do not have the resources to cope with it. The droughts, floods, natural disasters, water scarcity, heat waves and many more impacts that we see are a symptom of a deep malaise called climate change. Today we all, and most importantly youth, need to work towards mitigating and creating awareness about climate change and be change-agents.
