Youth and Climate Change.
The collaboration aims at:
- Fostering discourse in academia by indulging young scholars into academic research,
- Empowering youth to enable conversations around Climate Change,
- Realising and accessing the problems and coming up with imperative action strategies.
6 young scholars between ages 15-21 came together to write three academic research papers on three very important topics with the underlying theme of youth and Climate Change.
- Youth Procrastination and Climate Change by Muskaan Aggarwal and Anagha V Nair
- Climate Change Action through Education: Strategies to Integrate CCEE in Schools by M Nuzhath Khanam and Angela Singh Bedi
- Mainstreaming Gender in Climate Change Action: A Nuanced Approach by Varishtha Singh and Unmuktman Singh
This collaboration would not have come into being without the optimism and support of Ms. Ishika Chauhan. Loads of gratitude to her and all the young scholars for bringing positivity and enthusiasm to the collaboration.
Do get to know a little bit more about all those involved with this successful collab and do not forget to share this with everyone who might find it useful!

Hello!! I am Angela, and I study at the heritage school. I identify as a perpetually tired sloth, so you’ll probably never notice me outside my house, but if you do please come say hi, I’m shy. I am very good at eating an entire cake by myself, but I can also paint and you’ll occasionally find me obnoxiously singing to my guitar 🙂
