Changemakers of Today: Youth Advancing Sustainable Action

The role and influence of youth in climate, energy, and development efforts has grown in recent years. Youth have a vital role in achieving universal access to clean cooking, contributing to the cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable future that young people need to thrive. Ninety percent of the world’s 1.8 billion youth live in developing countries where 2.4 billion people still rely on polluting fuels and stoves to cook their food. The negative impact of traditional cooking on young people is substantial, both in terms of the size of the youth population affected and the cross-cutting nature of the adverse impacts on youth.

This session will be comprised of youth who are leading on clean cooking and sustainable energy to demonstrate why equitable decision-making with the inclusion of young people in the clean cooking sector is essential for sustainable progress. The panel discussion will showcase what young entrepreneurs and innovators are doing to tackle clean cooking challenges and what support youth leaders need to scale their efforts.
