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.
It is absolutely essential to assert that the youth of the world have the potential to take the lead in the fight against climate change and foster a movement to meet the challenge. It is of equal importance that one understands this to be a continuous process requiring substantial guidance and support from different members of society.
The POP Movement which truly believes in the action of youth “inspired by knowledge”, assesses this need and offers a wide range of mentorship and support, to young people, youth-led groups and others who are strongly inclined towards collectively acting on climate change and issues related to the environment.
