Who is KAMY?
KAMY is a grassroots climate movement led by Malaysian youth that stood on the principles of Climate Justice. We call for representative climate action in Malaysia by empowering vulnerable groups and communities; youth, women, and the marginalised. A rise in temperature above 1°C would threaten Malaysia's social and economic security, and we would face an existential crisis.
We demand serious political will in climate change policies that are based on principles of peace, equity and democracy. Politicians must take a serious stand against the climate crisis. The ecological and climate breakdown must be answered. We call on the Malaysian government and the educational institutions to declare "Climate Emergency" to accelerate social and economic reforms that thrive on the fundamentals of regenerative development and climate-resilience.
Since April 2019, we have conducted a range of bottom-up strategies to empower the communities through multi-language advocacy, climate protests, capacity building workshops, community awareness to reach the broader demographic. We aim to break the urban and western and environmental-centric narrative of Malaysia's climate discourse.
Everyone deserves to be informed regardless of their race, gender, age, citizenship status, education and economic background.
