A Young Man from Moldova Became a Member of the Youth Advisory Group on Climate Change Launched by the U.N. Secretary-General
Vladislav Kaim, a young man from Moldova, became a member of the first Youth Advisory Group on Climate Change launched by the Secretary-General of the United Nations (U.N.). Young people from Brazil, Sudan, France, the U.S., India, and Fiji will also be part of the same group.
In a statement published on the United Nations website, Vladislav Kaim is described as a young economist committed to providing environmentally friendly and decent jobs for young people, bringing in-depth expertise in international trade and migration.
“I am extremely pleased to announce that the U.N. Secretary-General, His Excellency Antonio Guterres, has appointed me to be a member of the first-ever Climate Change Youth Advisory Group to the Secretary-General.
As a member of the Group, I will advise His Excellency on how post-COVID sustainable economic revitalization strategies can ensure a greener and more prosperous future for today’s youth and society as a whole.
In my work as a member of the Youth Advisory Group, I will work with six other magnificent colleagues from all over the world: Paloma Costa (Brazil), Nisreen Al Sayeem (Sudan), Nathan Méténier (France), Sophia Kianni (the U.S.), Archana Soreng (India) and Ernest Kristoffer Gibson (Fiji),” the young man wrote on his Facebook page.
Vladislav Kaim added that “I am proud that through my voice both Moldova and Eastern Europe as such will be represented in the first Youth Advisory Group on Climate Change launched by the U.N. Secretary-General.
It is an important opportunity to confirm and improve the climate ambitions of the country and the region.”
The U.N. communiqué on the establishment of this group states that members of the Secretary-General’s Youth Advisory Group on Climate Change represent the diverse voices of young people in all regions, as well as in small island states.
They will provide perspectives and solutions to climate change, from science to community mobilization, from entrepreneurship to politics and from industry to conservation.
