Let’s look back on how young environmental activists in Asia and the Pacific have been moving beyond personal and collective climate action towards influencing the climate agenda at all levels.

'On Equal Terms', a collaborative effort with 335 youths from 78 countries, provides a checklist of steps for youth inclusive policymaking ahead of the 2025 Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
