DTSE is a youth-led movement with the vision of educating and mobilising young people the globe over to be catalysts in encouraging their families, communities, and societies to promote and adopt dietary changes as a powerful, far-reaching climate action which humans, especially those in developed economies, can readily and immediately take for the sake of the health of Earth and ourselves whilst helping to make a contribution to the achievement of many United Nations Sustainable Development Goals interconnected with human demand for food.
On the occasion of the Asia-Pacific Climate Week 2021 organised by UNFCCC, World Bank, UNEP, UNDP, UNESCAP, Asian Development Bank, and Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), DTSE has launched its first advocacy campaign of e-petitioning 19 G20 nations to sign the Intergovernmental Declaration on Children, Youth and Climate Action for which the joint custodians are UNICEF, YOUNGO, and the Children’s Environmental Rights Initiative conducted under the auspices of the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and the Environment. Please refer to the Facebook post at https://bit.ly/DTSEPetitionFBPost1 for further details on the campaign.
The Declaration represents an opportunity for UN member states which are not yet signatories to commit to the adoption of a comprehensive framework to rectify the widespread omission of children and youth from climate policies, strategies and plans across different tiers of government.
DTSE is recruiting unpaid volunteers as e-Petition Campaign Ambassadors to promote and support the campaign online through social media, website, events, videos, and podcasts to invite the public to sign the e-petitions. Prospective ambassadors must first become a DTSE member by subscribing to our Youtube channel at https://bit.ly/DTSEYoutube and to join our Facebook private group at https://bit.ly/DTSEFBGroup. Ambassadors who are skilled in social media marketing, online content creation, graphic design, podcasting, search engine optimisation, copywriting, website building, project management, online video production, and public relations can contribute according to their expertise.
Please post preferably the URL of your LinkedIn profile or alternatively your CV as plain text, in our Facebook private group. As all posts to our Facebook private group at https://bit.ly/DTSEFBGroup are to be approved by the moderator, we will view but not approve your post thereby preserving the privacy of the content in your LinkedIn profile or CV.
DTSE as a partner of YOUNGA Forum 2021 will be sending a delegation of its members to the event. Ambassadors who secure the largest number of signatures for the online petition of a particular G20 nation will be nominated as a DTSE delegate to attend the event free of charge. In addition, all ambassadors will receive a certificate of appreciation as a service record of their contribution to the campaign. Ambassadors whose performance is exceptional may also be offered a letter of reference and an invitation to apply for a scholarship, in recognition of their exemplary service.
We must make a CHOICE to take a CHANCE or things will never CHANGE!
Let’s put our Earth where our mouth is!
