YOUTH DAY 2019
[/av_heading]

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=” admin_preview_bg=”]
From the 13th to the 17th of June, a wave of youth-led actions took place across South Africa in commemoration of Youth Day.  United under the banner of #YouthDemandClimateJustice, young South Africans called on our government to take decisive action on climate change.

On 14 June, the youth of KwaZulu-Natal, together with Action 24-supported South African Youth Climate Change Coalition (SAYCCC), joined youth from across the country in demanding climate action, as they marched on the KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Legislature.

Like other youth-inspired actions that took place across South Africa in commemoration of Youth Day 2019, SAYCCC and the KZN youth also handed over a memorandum to a representative of the KZN Provincial Legislature Speaker, the Mayor of Umgungudlovu Municipality, Mr. Njilo.

Addressed to the Honourable Nontembeko Boyce, Speaker of the KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Legislature, the memorandum begins by calling on the KZN Legislature to take urgent action to bring the climate crisis to a halt, as “a prerequisite to protect poor people, future generations, and the environment from tremendous suffering”.

Citing the recent devastating April floods as one of the many extreme weather events KZN communities have experienced, SAYCCC also called for climate justice, integrated legislation on climate change response, increased ambition for the just transition to renewable energy, and for the KZN Provincial Legislature to declare a climate emergency.
