Comparlante took the impact of young people and persons with disabilities in action against the climate change to the “Peoples’ Summit on Climate, Rights and Human Survival” this week in New York.
Our Co-Founder, Sebastián Flores, as RIADIS / IDA representative, stated that “All the human beings have the right to be identified and to identify their needs and diversity, to be recognized and duly treated at every moment, especially in times of climate and humanitarian crisis. To achieve it, it is critical to have accurate and up to the date data to manage correctly, inclusively risks and effective public policies design. At the same level, it is urgent to provide all the citizens information and education in accessible formats adapted to all the possible communication forms on their rights and duties with regard to the direct effects of climate change. We have contributed to groups with our experience and strong commitment to supporting all the different actors of the international system to advocate for every human being by focusing primarily on women, children/young people and indigenous peoples with disabilities from the Global South.”
