United Citizens Organization – A Decentralised Solution for Youth Led Climate Action

On Wednesday 10th November 2021, GloCha (Global Challenges Action Empowerment Consortium) launched United Citizens Organization (UCO), a quasi-international organization aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) offering a decentralised and blockchain based solution to empower and deliver youth led climate action.

Launched at COP26, UCO is rooted in the Action for Climate Empowerment Innovation Project, or ACE_AT. The purpose of this organisation is to build a bridge between the public and private sector and allow more equitable and efficient resource mobilisation for young climate activists across the globe, empowering them and giving them a better opportunity to put their ideas into action.

Founded by Miroslav Polzer, CEO of IAAI, an organisation which is an accredited as Observer of the UNFCCC, UCO in the true spirit of SDG17 brings together a wide range of partners from both the public and private sectors including UN Habitat Youth, Climate Chain Coalition (CCC), Global Youth Development Institute (GYDI), Education Communication and Outreach Stakeholder (ECOS), PHGG, APCD Chad, Arts Help, Unique Network, The Oblique Life, CoinTelegraphThe UCO’s roadmap has set ambitious targets for 2022, including publication of a white paper in late February 2022, development of a blockchain based Decentralised Autonomous Organization (DAO) and marketplace and a series of climate action awareness events across the world with Digital Art for Climate.

DigitalArt4Climate Winners presented at COP26

The United Nations announced 2021 as the Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development to recognise the value of creativity as a powerful resource for sustainable development and climate action. DigitalArt4Climate in partnership with UN-Habitat is an initiative to accelerate that force. The DigitalArt4Climate is an unprecedented multi-stakeholder partnership initiative which uses blockchain technology to turn art into digital assets or NFTs, which can be collected and traded, thus opening up a socio-technological innovation space which helps to unlock extraordinary potential for resource mobilization and climate empowerment.
