Declare Climate Emergency
Inclusive & Intersectional
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. The climate crisis is a gender injustice issue and a human rights crisis.
Serious political will
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. 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.
The right to climate information
Everyone deserves to be informed, regardless of their race, gender, age, citizenship status, education and economic background.
in Kuala Lumpur
Since April 2019, we have powered 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 must break the urban and western, and environmental-centric narrative of Malaysia's climate discourse.
The COVID-19 pandemic has many similarities to the climate crisis. It is transboundary and the most affected communities are the marginalised and the disenfranchised, the youth and women.
COVID19 has all but exposed our unpreparedness and the fragility of the human system. As a response to the pandemic, we are refocusing our strategy to increase and rebuild the resilience of our frontline communities most vulnerable to the risks of Covid19 and the impact of climate change.
We must bounce back. The pandemic has shown us a glimpse of an alternate future that is safe, should we act now. PUSH that reset button now ! COVID-19 has shown what we can do if we are united, and what the future holds. This is the beginning.
