COP26: Have Your Sei  

This year during COP26 Pacific youth united under the #Youth4Pacific Declaration on Climate Change. Representing frontline communities, grassroots organizations, youth networks, and Indigenous peoples, with unified support from around the world, we called 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. 


Have Your Sei brought Pacific peoples from across the world to share their stories on why they’re fighting for their islands. 

With the support of our people in the islands and the diaspora, our small team of Pacific Climate Warriors representing us at COP delivered the Youth4Pacific Declaration on Climate Change to our leaders during the High-level Pacific Islands Forum event held on November 4th. 

Salome Matangi presented the #Youth4Pacific Declaration to Pacific island leaders.

THE FIGHT IS NOT OVER – GET INVOLVED NOW

Have Your Sei: Beyond COP26

Have Your Sei brought Pacific peoples worldwide to share their stories on why we fight for our islands, and ultimately our survival.

Pacific youth united under the banner of #Youth4Pacific Declaration on Climate Change at the COP26. Frontline communities, grassroots organizations, youth networks, and Indigenous Peoples, with unified support from around the world, called on global leaders to act on the worsening climate crisis, with an intersectional lens prioritizing justice that promotes an inclusive and just world for ourselves and the future generations to come.

We need to continue the vital work of uplifting the voices of the vulnerable nations and the real leadership that people on the frontlines are showing. We must challenge world leaders to step up and give it their all to protect the people and the planet, not big polluters' profits.

There's plenty to do and we need you to get involved in the fight for climate justice – join us:
