The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change was adopted at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, June 1992. In Article 6, the convention calls on governments to educate, empower and engage all stakeholders and major groups on policies relating to climate change. The elements of Article 6 – education, training, public access to information, public awareness, public participation and international cooperation on climate action – are referred to as Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE).
The ACE Youth Forum, the first youth forum for climate empowerment, was held on 29th April 2018 at the World Conference Hall, Bonn. Brahma Kumaris attended this event.
