Greetings and we hope that you are safe and healthy!
We are pleased to inform you that despite the difficulties and challenging times we all are going through, things are moving forward for the organising of the COP26!
Therefore, we would like to inform you that it is now possible to send the application by 28 February for the participation at the "Youth4Climate: Driving Ambition", the event reserved to young people (from 15 to 29 years old), from all over the world, which will be held in Milan, Italy from 28 to 30 September 2021.
For each of the 197 countries, which are part of the convention UNFCCC, two participants should be selected. Overall 400 young people are expected to participate, in compliance with even representation of gender, geographical balance and social inclusion.
The first two days of Youth4Climate will be dedicated to theme-based working groups, while the third day will see a direct interaction between the young delegates and the ministers participating in the preparatory conference (preCOP26) to be also held in Milan, Italy in the following two days.
For submitting the application, please refer to https://un.submittable.com/submit. For more information on Youth4Climate please refer to https://www.un.org/youthenvoy/youth4climate-driving-ambition/.
We would kindly ask you to circulate this information to your membership or, in case, apply directly yourself!
