Handbook on advocacy
for the environment

In 2020 the Icelandic Youth Environmental Association published a handbook in advocacy for the environment.

It was written by Pétur Halldórsson and Þorgerður M Þorbjarnardóttir.

The book is written to make advocacy more accessible for youth with methods that are based on experience which the authors, have gained through participation in the organization’s activities. 

Examples of what can be found in the handbook:

  • How to write public comments

  • How young people can increase their influence and credibility when interacting with governments

  • Information about governance networks and democratic legitimacy
