Committee on SDG 13

Climate Change is a reality and acknowledged to pose a serious existential threat to our planet and anything that lives. Overwhelming scientific evidence indicates that the situation is growing dire by the day and must be addressed with urgency. It is also true that the youths of today are the world leaders of tomorrow and some regions of the world including developing countries, host the highest youthful populations and the numbers are increasing.




Campaign for a UN resolution to include Climate Education, in all academic settings around the world, as an SDG 13 Target.

The Climate Education curriculum will follow the climate action initiatives and guidelines of the UN, particularly of its agencies UNFCCC “Action for Climate Empowerment,” UNESCO’s “Education for Sustainable Development,” and UNEP “Youth, Education, and Environment” program. It will emphasize resource management conceiving the outcome of the UN-Water Conference. Furthermore, extending our support to United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, “Our Common Agenda” (A/75/982), calls for a renewal of solidarity across younger generations, putting forward several concrete recommendations to further that objective. Specifically listed is “Protect Our Planet” and seeking youth support, which we believe is vital to Initiatives meant to “Educate, Encourage, and Engage” our youth on climate action and to support the Common Agenda. Our proposal is Secretary-General Guterres’ call made manifest. There is a pre-existing global network of knowledgeable student and youth leaders capable of implementing the groundwork for the climate education syllabus. It is wise and pertinent to center climate change education projects around those who stand to be most affected by it –that is, the youth– and those most familiar with the communities and institutions where the curriculum will be implemented.




awareness of one's national animal, bird, flower, and those in the existential crisis, and their relationship with climate crisis

My Species is a Sustainable Development Goal 13 common agreed program of the fundamental objectives of the World Youth Group. My Species entails promoting and educating our youth on the existential crisis of many species in this world and its relationship with climate change. Each member and organization of the World Youth Group will advocate for an animal, bird, or fish that are in the endangered, critically endangered, near threatened, or least concern category on the WWF and IUCN red list.

‘My Animal’ or ‘My Bird’ or ‘My Fish’, is a CAP that belongs to the SDG-13 of the Fundamental Objective of the Master Plan.
Each member organization of the Master Plan will advocate for one Animal/Bird/Fish, which are in the Endangered, Critically Endangered, Near Threatened, or Least Concern category.



UNESCO - Climate risk management

This course is developed by UNESCO and is implemented in association with the World Youth Group for policymakers (Ministers / Parliamentarians).

The general aim of this course is to provide the student with a base level of knowledge of drought and flood processes as well as methods to structure and analyse water management issues and options that enables her/him to study scientific literature on the disaster risk management of these two hydrological extremes. After the course the students should understand how floods and droughts influence our society and what role water management and policy plays in addressing and tackling these issues. This course provides students a multi-disciplinary understanding of water management, including the physical dimensions of the problem and how they are affected by stressors such as socio-economic development, climate change and land use change.
