Side Event

AOSIS (Alliance of Small Island States) co-organized with The Permanent Mission of Republic of Malta to the UN, The Permanent Mission of Fiji to the UN and YOUNGO (official youth constituency of the UNFCCC), March For Science, Island Resilience Partnership, EarthX

The science is clear: countries must take urgent action to transition to resilient, zero-carbon pathways to limit global temperature rise. The Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS), YOUNGO, March For Science, Island Resilience Partnership, EarthX, Permanent Mission of Fiji to the United Nations, and Permanent Mission of Malta to the United Nations are uniting voices for a global virtual side-event - The SC1.5NCE NOT SILENCE Forum. The event responds to the scientific imperative unequivocally set forth in the IPCC 1.5°C Special Report (SR1.5). It will illustrate the ways that youth advocates and island leaders are spearheading the global movement for science-based climate action in the midst of a pandemic.

The SC1.5NCE NOT SILENCE Forum will serve to accomplish the following objectives:

  • Build momentum for the SC1.5NCE NOT SILENCE campaign (and support for the IPCC 1.5C Special Report) heading into COP26
  • Highlight the impact of the climate crisis on frontline nations and showcase governments / leaders who are leading the fight against the climate crisis
  • Demonstrate how youth leaders are spearheading climate action around the world <,p>
