Jovens&Mudança: guia sobre mudança climática e estilos de vida

The guidebook developed by UN Environment and UNESCO aims to answer the questions that young people aged from 15 to 24 may have, and to inspire them in their daily lives. It explores the interrelationship between climate change and lifestyles through a scientific, political, economic, social, ethical and cultural angle and identifies actions young people might take towards more sustainable lifestyles. It channels the relevant information related to climate change in a less abstract and frightening manner, helping young people develop alternate visions and set goals towards improving their future. This guidebook provides information, case studies and useful tips around topics relevant to young people and their everyday lives, such as food and drink, travel and transport, leisure and entertainment. At a time when the Earth’s resources are being depleted faster than they can be replenished, adopting and promoting more sustainable ways of living that are in harmony with our communities and nature has never been more crucial. This guidebook supports young people to become advocates and agents of change for sustainable lifestyles in their respective communities around the world.
