CLanIMATE youth: Empowering young people to tackle climate change through the use of animation tools




CLanIMATE youth 14 1  

The global warming recorded in mainland France over the last century is about 30 % greater than the average warming throughout the globe. The average annual temperature has risen by 0.95 °C compared to 0.74 °C globally. These values are even higher for only the second half of the 20th century: increase of 1.1 to 1.5 °C over the period 1950-2000 (ONERC, 2007/2009), or 1.5 °C over the period 1959-2009 (Ribes et al., 2016).



The process of animation development and screening would be an effective driver for social change and the end result will be used as a medium to promote youth participation in public awareness and active citizenship to empower people engage in environmental governance, including climate change governance.

Therefore, having as target group youth workers and young people, we propose a project with the following objectives:

•To provide an accessible way for young people to take action on climate change, through deepening their understanding, engaging and motivating their wider community, and also shaping and creating their own animation, in order to communicate their messages and perspectives to decision-makers and the public.
•To deliver training courses to directly train the target group (young people) in a set of skills and key competences related to animation production as a means of raising young people's voice, and deliver these courses to a target group of Youth workers, in order to amplify and perpetuate their ripple effect.

International cooperation within the framework of this project is an important factor that will allow partners to present, according to their expertise, a complete training in skills and competences needed to develop an animation as a tool to empower young people to tackle climate change. Youth from different countries will have the chance to meet, exchange experiences, concerns and recommend common actions to tackle the negative impacts of climate change for a more sustainable future for them and the generations to come. This will be the starting point for the delivery of a comprehensive tool for youth, having a trans-European character, which can be utilized as a means of rising voices,’ mobilization and policy dialogue development on local, national and international level.
