Generation Futures delegation 

On the occasion of COP-26 (COP26), we would like to amplify the voice of young people - YOUR voice - thanks to the Future Generations Delegation!

The term “ future generation ” appears in the definition of sustainable development and in general in political discourse on the climate future as being a central element. However, these famous “future generations”, including young people, children and students, are very little listened to or even heard by these same decision-makers.

Oxfam-Québec and Écothèque de l'Université de Montréal, in collaboration with the Collectif de la société civile québécoise-COP26 *, set up the “Delegation of future generations” bringing together some twenty young people involved in the climate.

After having attended the activities of the Dialogues for the climate and having collected complaints and recommendations, the members of this delegation will present the fruit of their collaborative work to the Tribune of future generations , on November 11 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., in order to express and to make their voices heard among elected politicians and influential university members in Quebec and Canada.

Amplify our voices!

Let's set up a dialogue for the climate and give a voice to young people from all walks of life, which too often is sidelined especially in events such as COP-26.
 
Ambition is not a utopia if it is supported, shared and supported.

We refuse to believe that we are facing a future defined in advance, the IPCC report reminds us that it is still possible to get out of the climate crisis. The environmental future cannot be undoubtedly in vain and consequently, it is not naive to want to act, to get involved, to militate or to want to present one's ideas, action plans for a better future.

These notebooks want to remind governments that they must respect the principle of responsibility towards their citizens, and especially towards “future generations”. These famous future generations already exist and we want to come forward. Our grievances demand redress for the climate crisis. The solutions currently proposed as well as the national and international policies are not ambitious enough.  

 

Our grievance books, bringing together the recommendations written by the Delegation of Future Generations during COP-26, but also the recommendations, complaints, wishes that the project will have received, across Quebec, by the end of COP-26 , aim to constitute the advocacy of future generations against climate inaction. But they also represent our hopes, our visions and overall a concrete and realistic political proposal.

 

We say very realistic, because what we are asking for goes beyond ambition: it is a question of taking the necessary actions to preserve our future - to all of us.

 

Through these notebooks, we also want to be part of the actions that will have to be taken. More than a collection of complaints, the notebooks of future generations are a proposal for a transition that respects the principles of climate justice.  

 

Help us to complete the Cahiers de Doléances des Générations Futures by submitting your recommendation / complaint / wish.
