Raleigh Mongolia partner with The Daily Mirror on climate change reports

Youth from Raleigh Mongolia’s Action Not Excuses campaign have recently published climate stories with The Daily Mirror’s NextGen project.

Over the last few months young people from Raleigh Mongolia and their Action Not Excuses campaign, Urban Nomads, have been collaborating with The Daily Mirror to gather important climate change stories from their home country. Read their stories from the climate emergency and how Raleigh young people are fighting for change.

Ulaanbaatar is one of the most polluted capital cities in the world and also densely populated – it’s home to half of Mongolia’s three million population. In winter, temperatures in the world’s coldest capital can plummet to minus 20 and the only way for many people to stay warm is to burn raw coal. At its worst, pollution levels reach 687 micrograms per cubic metre — 27 times the level WHO recommends as safe. In 2018, UNICEF declared an air pollution crisis in the country.

Young people from Raleigh Mongolia’s Urban Nomads campaign have been investigating d the impact of pollution and urban migration on people living in Mongolia. Read these insightful and impactful stories from Khash-Erdene, Anudari, Sainsanaa, Merel and Narangerel.
