The Climate Change Programme works towards increasing knowledge and engagement when it comes to climate change, within IFLRY member organizations. In addition, we develop policy and attend meetings such as the Conferences of the Parties.
Climate change is an important issue for liberals, because it affects people’s right to freedom. Today, my freedom does not stop where yours begin. Pollution leads to a changing climate, and thus, dangerous consequences. But the consequences are not faced by those responsible — rather, it is the people who have the least responsibility for climate change who face the consequences. With member organizations all over the world, IFLRY members are experiencing different consequences of climate change.
IFLRY works towards globalizing freedom, and limiting the consequences of climate change is an important factor to be able to globalize freedom. As an international organization, we can increase the focus on climate change internationally.
