Global Youth Dialogue on Youth for Climate Action

Global Youth Dialogue is aimed to bring an informed dialogue on youth related issues in Sri Lanka and elsewhere with a view to identifying challenges youth face and opportunities available to them to achieve their shared life goals. The Dialogue on youth can be informed by both empirical data and conceptual analysis from different parts of the world as well as the lived experiences of youth participants.

Climate change, which is identified by climate scientists as a major threat to the well being and even survival of humanity, is treated by the world community as a key public policy issue for all countries across the world. If effective measures are not taken to reverse the present trends in global warming and related consequences, future prospects of countries in achieving their economic and other national goals will be bleaker. This is naturally a major concern for youth. Given this situation, youth across the world need to play a major role in raising their voices, mobilizing public support for climate action and contributing to climate change adaptation measures at global, national and local levels. The proposed youth dialogue is expected to explore modalities for youth engagement in these activities.

Workshop on Scholarly Publications

Dissemination of research findings is an essential part of the scientific research process.  Hence, it is of utmost importance for a researcher who is writing a full paper with the aim of publishing in a reputable journal or in a reputable proceeding.  Furthermore, getting a paper published in a reputable peer-reviewed journal or proceeding is an important milestone for researchers.

Through the publication workshop, we intend to disseminate knowledge on writing scientific papers and scholarly publications to assist future researchers.  All conference participants are welcome to participate in this workshop.
