Young people have the most at stake in the climate crisis but their representation in climate leadership and decision making is still negligible. With one-fourth of the population of Bangladesh belonging to the 15-29 age-group, it’s high time their voices on climate crisis are heard and their suggestions heeded. Local conversations on safe water seems like just the perfect platform to start developing local youth leadership on climate change.
