Young people like you and I are powerful agents of change in preparing, responding, recovering and reconstructing from disasters, as well as minimising and preventing other crises, such as conflicts and epidemics like Ebola. We also play an important role in reducing the risks we face from disasters in a variety of ways, from pestering our parents to get prepared to creating local action plans and advocating for positive change on the issues that matter!
It is time to stand up for the world we want – a world without disaster.
To push the world to get prepared and to raise youth voices, Youth Beyond Disasters is launching Global Youth Taking Action on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), to gather 1000 Voluntary Commitments from youth all over the world. These commitments are submitted by individuals or organisations made by young people and led by youth.
Want to show you mean DRR business? Submit a voluntary commitment through us by completing this form! We will document all 1000 Youth Voluntary Commitments as One Global Voice. If you need help writing your Voluntary Commitment, please check out the easy-to-read manual we have written for you. If you have any questions, please let us know. We would love to help you!
