 Be The Change

Join youth from around the world at the the UN Climate Change Conference of Youth (COY).  The conference takes place right before the annual UN Climate Change Conference, also known as Conference of the Parties (COP), in the same host country as the COP. COY serves as a space for capacity building and policy training, in order to prepare young people for their participation at COP.


In 2021, COY will be in its 16th year and is dubbed as the largest and longest running youth event to date; gathering thousands of young changemakers from more than 140 countries. It is likewise hailed as the most significant youth gathering for it’s capacity to directly forward the official youth position in the UN Climate Negotiations. Register here--dates pending the pandemic, expected to be in the last week of October, 2021.
