Facts

Jaffna had the privilege of hosting the first Climathon in Sri Lanka

The livelihoods of most people in Jaffna depend on agriculture and fisheries. A little changes in the climate have a huge impact on the biodiversity of the region which undoubtedly has direct impact on the livelihoods of the locals. Organic Movement of North East (OMNE) together with Dilmah Conservation brought Climathon to Jaffna last year.

Steering committee of Climathon Jaffna 2.0

Climate-resilient, sustainable cities can only be attained if people learn how to work together towards shared outcomes. This need goes well beyond traditional political dynamics and relationships towards a more holistic approach with new models of governance; an inclusive mindset towards working with communities and novel solution providers; and building different working relationships. A group of change-makers from different backgrounds unit together to lead youth towards this mission.

Meet the organisers

OMNE is a movement bringing together hundreds of food activists, small-scale organic farmers, fisher-folk and agricultural workers mainly from Northern and Eastern Provinces of Sri Lanka. Built on a strong sense of unity, solidarity between these groups, it defends ecological agriculture for food sovereignty as a way to promote good health, social justice and dignity.
