About POP: Youth inspired by knowledge
The POP Movement "believes that impacts of climate change, which will pose enhanced risks over time would directly affect the youth of the world, who have a stake in the future. The youth of today (in the age range of 10-24 years) constitute nearly 25 percent of the world population.
"Join the Movement and shoulder responsibility for progress, change and forward thinking through innovation as a valuable part of our worldwide human resource base. For initiating a revolution in the hearts of the youth of the world, we urgently need to provide knowledge that inspires change through action, and the tools for carrying it out as a shared and collective enterprise. Naive and common notions associating youth with immaturity, inexperience, or indulgence in meaningless activities urgently need to be addressed through examples of sensible and inspired action by youth, highlighting exemplary initiatives and success stories. While recognizing and rewarding the current leaders of the battle against climate change on international platforms, we can also encourage future leaders to think faster, act faster. The power and zeal to initiate revolutions through knowledge-inspired action also lies with them to pave the way ahead for a sustainable future - a future in which the youth of the world have an expanding and direct stake.
"There is a need to bring billions of young individuals to the cause of addressing the threat of climate change, so that in future they become sustainable thinkers in whatever profession they choose to pursue. There is an immense need to link all the youth associations, organizations, and most importantly each young individual, and provide them a platform where they share their action-oriented efforts to integrate activities, mobilize collective efforts and utilize knowledge to act upon and share what they are doing to address the threat of climate change.
The POP movement aims to empower the youth to have an active participation in addressing issues of climate change faced by our planet. The POP Movement was founded by Lt. Dr. R.K. Pachauri, who brought the issue of climate change on 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" (https://thepopmovement.org/about/).
