SCC-B ‘Climate Oath’ at Cox’s Bazar Sea Beach with 100 Climate Activists

South Climate Conclave- Bangladesh Chapter (SCC-B), an organ of a greater climate project Climate Action Champions Network (CACN), is a network of five South Asian countries organised by GenLab and patronised by the US state department that aims to underscore the impact of global climate change on human life and induce climate awareness among the people and encourage the sustainable entrepreneurs through training and seed grants. 

GenLab is a youth-led social think-and-do tank. The mission of GenLab is to promote various impactful programs and innovative ideas involving the youth in the areas of social development, especially climate change, religious harmony and inclusion, and gender discrimination, basically focused on Sustainable Development Goals – 3, 5, and 16.

To address the climate cause and expedite the climate movement by outlining the right course of thought and the correct line of action, South Climate Conclave- Bangladesh Chapter, for the first time in its history, is going to organise a ‘Climate Oath’ at the Doria Nagar, Sea Beach, Marine Drive, Cox’s Bazar on December 11, 2022, Sunday at 2:30 pm in the afternoon. 

The oath-taking will be attended by over 100 climate change youth activists, including members of the local administration, ethnic community, local fishers, working women, and students. Many people from all walks of life will also participate in the oath-taking ceremony.   

Noted educationist, the founder of Bishwa Sahitya Kendra and a veteran champion of the climate change movement Prof Abdullah Abu Sayeed, has written the text of the Climate Oath.    

The Climate Oath would be the key event of the 3-day long SCC-B conference being held from 9-11 December, highlighting the impact of climate change on community development and ways to mitigate it.  

Earlier in the morning (on the 3rd day of the climate conference from 8-00 am to 12-00 pm), a Knowledge Spell session will be held (at the Ballroom of the Hotel Ocean Paradise) where eminent speakers will elaborate on agendas like how we can use the social media effectively in tackling climate change, climate migration and peace, climate and gender including different kinds of climate stories around the globe.
