Nowadays, climate conflicts pose the greatest development challenges in the world. Children and education systems are often on the front line of these climate conflicts. The rise in violent due to water scarcity, loss of species, plants and ecosystem and natural disasters like flood, drought, etc. in many parts of the world and radicalization represent a significant threat to all of us.

Members of radical groups adopt increasingly extreme political, economic, social, cultural, and religious ideologies and use undemocratic and violent means to achieve their objectives. South Asian countries also face the challenge of objectively addressing deeply rooted structural causes of conflicts emanating from historical injustices, marginalization and corruption on finding environmental answers. "The oceans are in a state of emergency", she warned.

"Entire marine ecosystems are vanishing with the warming of the seas, and as the waste of our world empties into our waters, we face the devastating crisis of plastic pollution." "We are a disease that is infecting our planet." "The people will hold our governments and corporate powers accountable for the destruction you are allowing to our environment," she said.

It can be noted that Licypriya is demanding to enact the climate change law in India and all countries of the World to transform words and papers into action to combat the climate change by drawing the attention of the World leaders.

The IYC recognised annual prize is in honour of what it called „Mandela‟s contribution to resolving conflicts and promoting race relations, human rights and reconciliation.‟ A total of 3 individuals got the Mandela Peace Prize 2019, 9 got the India Peace Prize 2019 & 79 youth leaders got the National Youth Icon Award 2019.
