Decoding UNFCCC Language

June 3 , 2024, 3.00pm

UN Campus, Bonn and Online

This workshop empowered youth climate leaders by exploring and unraveling some of the complex terminology used within the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change), to make it more easily accessible and understandable.

Through an interactive discussion participants had the chance to identify ways to demystify some of the technical language frequently used. By exploring, discussing and bridging these gaps, this workshop demonstrated how to turn language barriers into stepping stones and routes for meaningful youth participation and action on climate change within the UNFCCC process.

This session was delivered in collaboration with Cambridge Zero, ClimaTalk, Climate Words and The University of Bath Institute for Policy Research (IPR). The workshop was available in person for attendees of the Bonn Climate Change Conference SB 60 in person, and online for everyone else. More information here.

Mind & Soul: An Indigenous Perspective on Mental Health

May 29 , 2024, 7.00pm


We hosted a webinar with The Oxygen Project to hear Tom Blue Wolf of the World Elders Council and youth climate activist Te Maia Wiki offer an intergenerational Indigenous perspective on mental and environmental health, and how language influences the way we see the world.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and terms like self-care and climate anxiety are getting much attention, but what does mental health really mean?

Western ideas regarding the nature of the self, and the mind, are latent within the language that produces these words––an ideology that sees the individual mind as insular. Conversely, Indigenous philosophy purports the mind to be inseparable from the surrounding environment.

To truly address the climate issues we face, we must understand the modern ideas of individualism at the root of the dysfunction. Indigenous wisdom can inspire the mental, emotional, socio-spiritual shift needed to reconnect the Western mind with the greater world.
