Diplomatic Dispatch – Episode 9: The youth perspective

Climate action has to become the cornerstone of not only Canada’s domestic policy but also of Ottawa’s foreign policy, says Dominique Souris, co-founder and executive director of Youth Climate Lab.

“As far as I’m concerned, foreign policy is climate policy,” Souris says. “We’re talking about a global climate problem, a global climate emergency.”

She also calls on the federal government to incorporate traditional Indigenous knowledge in its policy and recognize the role Indigenous people play in safeguarding the planet’s biodiversity.
