KAMY is a climate justice and feminist organisation led by young people to push for the climate emergency declaration in Malaysia. We believe that nurturing meaningful partnership, peacebuilding and strengthening constituencies across civil society organisations and vulnerable groups like Indigenous communities, women and youth, set the foundation for people-led climate action.
WHO IS KAMY?
Facilitate civil society discussion across Malaysian grassroots and CSOs in Malaysia to understand how the climate crisis affects their work and resistance. Providing platforms founded on transparency, representation and inclusion in democratic decision-making to compile comprehensive recommendations, guidance, aspirations and reporting to be presented to the government, policymakers and other stakeholders such as UN treaty bodies.
Mainstreaming the core of gender justice across all our operations to safeguard women's leadership in climate governance and foster meaningful climate adaptation and resilience implementations across communities.
RIGHT TO CLIMATE INFORMATION
The radical shift from the urban and Global North narrative of the climate discourse in Malaysia by supporting independent, local and quality climate journalism and community storytelling. Access to climate information is a human right, especially to vulnerable communities such as Indigenous People, farmers, fisherfolk, migrants and undocumented.
Using peacebuilding mechanisms like cultural, creativity, and art partnerships to mend relationships, forge healing and understanding, and build trust with vulnerable communities.
Facilitate coalition building and forming action networks across youth groups, grassroots communities, CSOs and NGOs at the local, national, regional and global levels.
Organising peaceful protests, rallies, discussions, podcasts, documentaries, training and intersectional workshops, etc., capacity building. Create safe spaces to lobby for climate policies that are fair and equitable to the people.
Increasing the resilience of vulnerable communities such as Orang Asli women and youth in improving social and financial security such as; get help during disasters, disaster risk reduction, climate reparation, health, nutrition, education, access to justice and decision making spaces.
