Girls and young women are the hardest hit by climate change. Despite this, their voices are not adequately represented in the climate discussion and most policies do not address their specific needs. We must change that. In 2021, Inês Maria Gonçalves led a team of young women to develop a consultation on girls' unique views and perceptions of climate change. More than 33,500 girls and young women from 90 countries took part, both online and offline, and spanned across 18 languages.Today, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts and UNICEF are launching our youth-friendly report with the consultation findings. Take a look to explore what girls have told us and how to amplify their voices.
