Diversity | Equity | Inclusion
The goal of the Resilience Youth Network is to develop the next generation of leaders in the fields of resilience and climate change adaptation. We recognize that underrepresented groups such as people of color, women, LGBTQ+ individuals, and indigenous communities are often not present in resilience-oriented conversations and decision-making processes due to systemic inequities and injustices. We also recognize that low-income people are often members of these same underrepresented groups and are among those most impacted by the effects of climate change. We are committed to promoting equity in the fields of resilience and climate change adaptation by addressing this discrepancy.
