KAMY is a climate justice movement led by mostly youth in Malaysia. We believe that nurturing meaningful partnership, peacebuilding and strengthening constituencies across civil society organizations and vulnerable groups like Indigenous communities, women and youth, set the foundation to a people's led climate action.
WHO ARE WE?
In an effort to increase the understanding of other groups on the impact of the climate crisis on society, KAMY works with various non-environmental organizations as well as indigenous communities. Among KAMY's partners are cross border organizations across Asia.
Hold discussions with civil society through grassroots organizations or groups in Malaysia to increase understanding of the impact of the climate crisis on affected groups, and the work of NGOs and CSOs.
Provide a platform for representatives from civil society to gather and make decisions democratically and gather comprehensive requests to be presented to policymakers or other stakeholders.
Build coalitions, coalitions, and action networks between youth groups, grassroots communities, CSOs and NGOs at the local, national, regional and global levels.
Organizing peaceful protests, rallies, discussions, documentaries, arts and customs, training and workshops, etc. to raise public awareness and capacity building for active participation in tackling the climate crisis in Malaysia & lobbying for climate policies that are fair and equitable to the people
Make the principle of gender justice as the core in increasing women's adaptation efforts to the impact of climate crisis
Increase the resilience of the Orang Asli community in the ability to seek assistance during disasters, reduce the risk of disasters and also increase food sufficiency
THE PEOPLE'S CLIMATE INVENTORY
Collect data from the community, and disseminate accurate and reliable information - anecdotes, public surveys, document translations, infographics, short videos. Formulate and document people -based demands and solutions in a memorandum
ACCESS TO CLIMATE INFORMATION
Break the urban and western narrative of the climate discourse in Malaysia, because access to climate information is a human right, especially to rural communities such as indigenous people, farmers, and fishermen, as well as the migrants and undocumented
