Nepali Greens' Climate Discourse Sessions

English

In support the Global Greens Climate Campaign, Nepali Greens is launching “Climate Discourse Session” with young farmers once in a month to have an interaction on climate change, its consequences on agriculture and ways to cope with the impacts of climate change.

Farmers are vulnerable to climate change. That's why, we focus on building the knowledge and capacity of young farmers so that they can cope with the impact of climate change.

Youth in Politics - Way Ahead

From being perceived as irresponsible and reckless to being called the strength of the nation, the youth of Nepal have come a very long way. To change the system, you have to be in the system. An unanswered question for the past few years is still a million dollar question to be answered. Some serious steps should be taken to bring youth out on the floor of mainstream politics. For now, one can only hope that during the next elections, more youth will vote, more will got elected and less will say, “How does it even matter? It’s not going to make a difference to me.” Because it does, it really does matter.

Youth on the Move

Most of youths are frustrated. If I’m a youth who’s ambitious, and believes in a scientific way of thinking, entrepreneurship, empowerment, progress and personal freedom, which party will back that? Is there a leader who represents my aspirations? Youth migration, job opportunity, peace and development are but optional issues for our leaders. And none of the true progressive Nepali youths are satisfied with this. They’re in a state of limbo, and hence, they opt to migrate.
