Share your experiences and raise your voice at the international level.
As a young person who cares about climate change, you may have gathered experiences worth sharing. Participation in the UN Climate Change process allows you to raise your concerns about how climate change threatens current and future generations, and also how it affects front-line communities now. As a delegate to the Forum you get the opportunity to shape the views being brought into the international decision-making process and connect and engage with different networks, including the formal youth constituency.
Be a climate policy geek. And be empowered.
As a part of the training program provided under this program, you have a hands on experience with climate policy advocacy and environmental governance. This would in-turn empower you to advocate more on national level and educate your peers.
A lifetime worth of memories:
You will make countless friends, meet new people and take back with you a lot of wonderful memories and experiences to cherish!
