To sustain and enhance human rights development in East Asia and beyond, it is essential to have youth involved in the discussion of the human rights agenda.

We look forward to seeing you at the event!

NAVIGATING THE CLIMATE-NUCLEAR NEXUS: OUR CLIMATE CRISIS AND NUCLEAR WAR

Register for the event here: https://members.ypfp.org/event-5521082

YPFP Tokyo is partnering with the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW), and Global Policy Diplomacy and Sustainability (GPODS) network to co-deliver a youth-focused global webinar exploring the intersections of the climate crisis and nuclear weapons as dual, mutually reinforcing, existential risks. Our global webinar will take place on 14th January 2024 at 10:00 am EST (15:00 UTC, 20:30 IST, 00:00 JST).

For this event, we are bringing together renowned experts to highlight the dual threats of the climate crisis and nuclear war, including Melissa Parke, Executive Director of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN, Nobel Peace Prize `17). We will also highlight the environmental, humanitarian, and climatic consequences of a nuclear conflict and contextualize this within our changing world.

Check out our YPFP Tokyo Policy Brief and outcomes of our involvement in the UN 2023 Water Conference!

Earlier this year, Young Professionals in Foreign Policy - Tokyo received our special accreditation as a stakeholder to the UN 2023 Water Conference, which entrusted us with the privilege of sending a small group of representatives to attend the Conference in-person at UN headquarters in New York. To make the most of this opportunity, we decided to expand the program to include knowledge-sharing and capacity building within the priority areas set by the UN 2023 Water Conference. We recruited a group of 15 delegates, led by Dr. Purvi Zaveri and Jay Makhijani, who met regularly to exchange views and deepen their understanding of water issues. The outcome was a policy briefing published ahead of the Conference, where 9 of our 15 delegates were able to contribute in-person.

You can find our Policy Brief “YPFP Tokyo x UN 2023 Water Conference Taskforce Policy Brief, Conference Activities, and Reflections” here: https://www.ypfp.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/YPFP-Water-Policy-Draft-5.06.2023-FINAL.pdf
