KAMY is a grassroots climate movement led by Malaysian youths based on the principles of Climate Justice . KAMY members have different backgrounds and understandings of the climate crisis. This diversity is our strength. We facilitate civil society groups of various backgrounds in understanding climate impacts to mobilizee the declaration of climate emergency in Malaysia.
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.
FACILITATION OF CIVIL SOCIETY
Hold discussions with civil society through grassroots organizations or groups in Malaysia to increase understanding of the impact of climate crisis on affected groups, and the work of NGOs and CSOs.
Using the "Citizen Assembly" strategy which provides a platform for representatives from civil society to gather to learn and debate problems and gather comprehensive requests to be presented to policy makers.
Organize protests, rallies, discussions, documentary screenings, trainings, workshops and others to raise public awareness, and 'capacity building' to act on the climate crisis in Malaysia & lobby for active and immediate change in policy
Make the principle of gender justice as the core in increasing women's adaptation efforts to the impact of climate crisis
THE PEOPLE'S CLIMATE INVENTORY
Collect data from the people, and disseminate accurate and reliable information - anecdotes, public surveys, document translation, infographics, short videos. Formulate and document the demands and solutions based on the people in an effective memorandum or policy brief .
ACCESS TO CLIMATE INFORMATION
Break the urban and English language 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
