Climate Solutions Road Tour Overview

  1. 1. Indian Youth Climate Network Climate Solutions Road Tour While young people are aware of the importance of climate change, our generation has not mobilized into large scale actions.

India Climate Solutions can and will be an example to the world, and young people need to recognize their power to transform the future into what we want to see.
