Arab Youth Climate Movement Qatar LLC(G) is an independent, non-profit, think-and-do-tank for environmental awareness & advocacy, research, and policy analysis.Since its founding in 2015, Arab Youth Climate Movement Qatar (AYCMQA) has been dedicated to improving environmental policy, developing grassroots awareness, and capacity building at the community level.
We are committed to mainstreaming environmental and climate issues into relevant policy areas. We research, support, and evaluate environmental awareness and policy at national, Regional (Gulf), and Middle East levels, bringing together actors from civil society, academia, and policymaking. The results are in-depth analyses and innovative recommendations. We are also committed to building holistic ecological education programmes and to collaborating with different partners from the region and beyond.
WHO WE ARE.
We are a multidisciplinary and passionate group of young students and professionals in Qatar. With a variety of national and cultural backgrounds, which reflect the lived reality of a cosmopolitan country, we are united through the knowledge of living and sharing a common home. We come together through our unwavering commitment to the preservation and care of this environment, which, through ecological interconnectedness, is a part of the environment shared by every individual on this planet.
Our vision is to create change for the benefit of people and the planet with a special focus on the Middle East.
Arab Youth Climate Movement seeks to generate awareness and action directed at tackling the base causes of the human behaviors responsible for the environmental devastation across our planet.
Through evidence-based research, qualitative understanding of cultural factors, and creative design thinking, at AYCM we seek to find the best-adapted and constructed solutions to the human forces and practices driving ecological loss.
