I am a climate-induced disaster survivor turned humanitarian actor and climate leader, I am a young person from India who envisions and works towards an equitable and sustainable world. I firmly believe that together it's possible!
I am a young person from a disaster prone area. By thorough reading and learning, I understood that one of the primary reason behind this situation is climate change. In 2020, I got selected as one of the twenty Youth Compact Champions working with the Compact for Young People in Humanitarian Action. Having an experience in climate action, and environmental education, I found that the Climate resilience, climate action, and climate literacy can surely help me in tackling the issues faced by my community. I believe that the FXB Climate Advocate program can help empower myself and my community in facing the atrocities and emergencies resulting from the Climate change. It could be beneficial at both a community and individual level considering my dream of creating a climate change resilient community.
