Becoming experts, building and valuing expertises: such are the three goals of CliMates’ research pole. Because we live in a complex, uncertain world in which knowledge is power, we want all young people to become knowledge carriers of youth expertise on Climate Change.
Our action thus focuses on enabling dynamics of youth expertise creation and valuation, but also on connecting research to CliMates’ empowerment and advocacy poles, international branches and community of Mates. Last but not least, we aim at integrating CliMates’ research activities to wider ecosystems of youth, research and climate actions.
Research being one of CliMates’ three core activities, the research pole is composed of a dedicated coordination team of three people. At the moment, the pole counts 8 active thematic research projects with unique identities but having in common the promotion of transnational, interdisciplinary, action-oriented research approaches
