The Civilization Rights Institute (CRI) and the Protect Our Planet (POP) Movement have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work together on climate action and justice and to support youth engagement and civilization rights in heritage communities affected by climate change.
Dr. Ahmed Rashed, the founding president of CRI, stated, "We continue our efforts to disseminate the principles and values of the Universal Declaration of Civilization Rights to a global audience, with the youth constituting a crucial segment of society to target. With the signing of this MOU, we applaud the POP Movement's continued commitment to engaging youth in climate action. We look forward to collaborating closely with them in areas of shared importance."
The POP movement aims to empower the youth to actively participate in addressing climate change issues faced by our planet. The POP Movement was founded by Lt. Dr. R.K. Pachauri, who brought the issue of climate change to the international agenda and led the Nobel Peace Laureate Organization, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, as Vice-Chairman for five years and as Chairman for thirteen years.
