 This document presents the proposals made by young people for their region in connection with climate change, gives visibility to their ideas and actions locally, and allows them toform a network and share their collective output.

Each class which participatedin the “Take Care of the Planet” 2015/2016 project was able to develop one or more proposals as a result of a whole process of investigation and research on a specific topic, and spend time for discussion and debate in order to generate ideas.

Local projects and solutions developed by young people are very different from one institution to another (eg: proposals to elected officials, to communities, to policy makers. Proposals that young people can implement themselves for the establishment or region in the short or long term, etc.).

 

 

 

Climate Negotiation Simulations in Rhône-Alpes

The students of Armorin put themselves into the place of decision makers, to renegotiatefor climate change: the mini-COP21 of Crest at Biovallée.

2016 05 03 MiniCOP21Crest 5The Armorin High School in Crest, which participated in the project “Take Care of the Planet”, organized on the 3rd of May, 2016 a simulation of COP21.
Monde Pluriel accompanied the teachers in preparing this event but also during the day it took part. Let’s look back on that experience.

Leading up to the 3rd of May, a class of 11th year and two classes of 12th year students prepared themselves to simulate the international negotiations under the leadership of Laurence Arnaud, teacher of History and Geography and referent of “Take Care of the Planet” in their establishment. She was helped by three other teachers.

From January to May, the 11th year students worked on the impacts of climate change on agriculture. To be consistent with the research and work carried out through the year, the simulation was focused on the issue of agriculture and food security under climate stress.

The students were interested in the position and characteristics of states to best prepare their role as state representatives during the simulation. Here is the list of countries that were represented by the 11th year students: Germany, Brazil, Canada, China, Spain, USA, France, India, Maldives, Mexico, Morocco, Nepal, Nigeria, Norway, Netherlands, Philippines , Portugal, Qatar, Congo, Senegal and Russia.

 

2016 05 03 MiniCOP21Crest 7The 12th year students, for their part, took the role of lobbyists, including Syngenta, Total, Monsanto, FNSEA and Petrobras, as well as the NGO WWF and the World Bank. Two of them also simulated the Presidency of this "mini-COP 21".

Jules Constant-Auclair, the Rhône-Alpes delegate at the Regional Conference “Take Care of the Planet" 2015, member of the delegation “Take Care of the Planet” Europe, who made a speech at the Education Thematic Day at COP21, is now in 11th grade in Crest. He participated in the simulation as a journalist and representative of the press with two of his comrades.

He wrote: "From the outset, the states position themselves. The poorest countries most affected by climate change advocate for an ambitious agreement, just like France which, as the host country, must strive for high objectives."
