About the Campaign
In recent decades, the term “Climate Change” has become increasingly familiar. Global temperatures are on the rise, bringing with them a myriad of threats to the environment, biodiversity, economy and human security. Increase in each centigrade of temperature brings with it the loss of millions of lives.
Our mission thus is to be a part of the global campaign for Climate Action to combat this transnational issue, affecting every individual life on earth. Climate influences the world as a whole — it is not a regional concept, rather a global phenomenon and no country is safe from its implications. Climate change is being caused by us, and only we can solve it.
In August 2018, Swedish activist Greta Thunberg became a motivating force for worldwide Climate activists by initiating the now global movement of climate strikes in schools by young students. The #FridaysForFuture movement started after 15 years old Greta Thunberg sat in front of the Swedish parliament every school day for three weeks, to protest against the lack of action on the climate crisis. Her posts on social media soon went viral and after the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP24) in December the movement caught fire across the globe. On 15 March 2019, an estimated 1.4 million students in 112 countries around the world joined her call in the striking and protesting.
Despite ranking among the top ten countries most vulnerable to climate change, Pakistan emits less than 1 percent of total annual global greenhouse gases. Friday For Future Pakistan is dedicated to voicing the unique vulnerability of our country to this global crisis on the international forum and make ourselves central in the debate for its mitigation. Every Friday students arrange a small awareness campaign in their institutes for the better future of Pakistan. Currently, we have 18 Universities and 157 students including 46 females.
Leadership for Environment and Development (LEAD) Pakistan is dedicated to spearheading and facilitating this campaign under its Global Climate Citizenship (GCC) Programme for mobilizing the youth of Pakistan and inspiring future leadership for a sustainable world. We must look to domestic and global channels to garner support for strengthening preparedness and response to these global changes to inhibit the magnitude of their impact locally.Follow the Campaign
