The event will start with a viewing of a short film, created by Population Action International, “Weathering Change,” which takes us to Ethiopia, Nepal and Peru to hear the stories of women as they struggle to care for their families while enduring crop failures and water scarcity.  The film shows how women and families are already adapting to the climate change challenges that threaten their health and their livelihoods.

Following the film, the event’s moderator will facilitate a discussion among youth leaders working to advance young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights and sustainable development.  The moderator will share the topic of the discussion and introduce the youth leaders.  The moderator will then open the discussion with a few questions that the youth leaders will respond to and comment on.  The moderator will facilitate a dialogue among the discussants and pose additional questions.  At the end of the discussion, the moderator will open the floor for questions for the discussants and facilitate and question and answer period prior to concluding the session.
