KWON-GESH Climate Pledge

We, the undersigned:  

Recognising the unprecedented urgency to step up global efforts to avoid dangerous effects of climate change,

Deeply concerned by the scientific evidence of the negative impacts of climate change that were unequivocally confirmed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change V (IPCC) in its Special Report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways,

Acknowledging that, signatories should, when taking action to address climate change, respect, promote and consider their respective obligations on youth, as well as intergenerational equity

Commit to involving our youth in our implementation of the Paris Agreement and the achievement of its goals, including when:

  1. putting in place climate adaptation or mitigation measures;
  2. communicating or updating nationally determined contributions;
  3. submitting or updating national adaptation communications or plans;
  4. or communicating long-term greenhouse gas emission development strategies.
