Have Your Sei at COP26

This year in the lead-up to COP26 Pacific youth have united under the #Youth4Pacific Declaration on Climate Change. As Pacific youth the world over, representing frontline communities, grassroots organizations, youth networks, and Indigenous peoples, with unified support from around the world, we call on our global leaders to respond to the challenge of this time with an intersectional lens prioritizing justice that promotes an inclusive and just world for ourselves, and the future generations to come.
Join us in the lead-up to COP26. Help strengthen and amplify our collective by signing the declaration and add your voice to our call. #HaveYourSei about why you are fighting for the future of our islands.

 

*In many places in the Pacific, a Sei is a flower worn behind the ear. We chose this because we want to showcase the beauty and resilience of Pacific cultures.

Here are some messages you can use for inspiration on your own posts:

  • The climate crisis puts at risk the preservation of our Pacific islands and cultures. Our Pacific values and traditions that are intrinsic to our being, spurs us to fight for our islands.
  • Over 600 Pacific youth came together to form the Youth4Pacific Declaration on Climate Change. It is our united voice. We demand Global leaders rise up and meet the challenge of the Climate Crisis at this year’s COP26.  
  • We know that real progress on climate requires transformative action that is rooted in our shared values of reciprocity, care, dignity, mutuality, solidarity, and respect for territorial integrity, sacred creative principles, and natural laws akin to that of our Pacific ancestors.
  • In the face of the climate crisis, Pacific islanders are not giving up. We continue to rebuild, recover and extend a helping hand to our communities. We are strong, resilient and we demand climate justice.
