From April to December 2022, #Decarbonize, a collaborative, school-based project, brought together primary and secondary students and educators from over 60 countries to learn, challenge, and co-create climate conversations. Under a Talanoa framework - an Indigenous dialogue for building trust and advancing knowledge with empathy and understanding - students shared their learning and lived experiences via blog posts, discussion boards, a virtual art gallery, project mapping, video conferences, and other innovative and engaging virtual experiences. During #Decarbonize over 35,000 global participants (1) Increased their awareness of global impacts of climate resilience, climate justice, and climate mitigation, and (2) Enhanced their contributions to quantifying the current progress of nations under the National Determined Contributions (NDCs), and (3) Improved skills and capacity-building for whole-school, local, and global climate action. #Decarbonize is developed and delivered annually by the Centre for Global Education and TakingITGlobal, under the moral patronage of CCUNESCO, and with the support of the Trottier Foundation, Ocean Wise, GreenLearning and a number of other strategic partners. The 2022 Youth Manifesto is a culmination of virtual collaborative work involving more then 100 global lead students across six continents. Throughout the 2022 Report children set forth a call for stakeholders to ensure that young people are meaningfully engaged and participate in the development and implementation of climate policies, programs, and processes that affect them. A process that moves beyond the recognition and identification of young people solely as beneficiaries, and towards engaging children as equal and valuable partners in projects, research, programmes, and initiatives. The artwork featured throughout this manifesto was produced by children ages 5-18 as a part of the #Decarbonize program. " G L O B A L C H I L D C L I M A T E M A N I F E S T O 2 0 2 2 #DECARBONIZE
