“One thing that we can do, especially as youth, is to build the momentum, build an alliance, that can speak with one, strong voice”
Highlights

Dear YIL member,

As thousands are planning to march through the streets of Glasgow as part of a global day of action during COP26, questions over the accessibility of the climate summit are growing louder.

As young experts and activists are pointing out, youth tokenism cannot be framed as inclusion when many young people from Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, Asia-Pacific and Indigenous communities – many of them now experiencing the impacts of the climate crisis first-hand – could be effectively barred from attending the summit.

For the past few months, during the GLF Africa and GLF Amazonia Digital Conferences, we have been listening to youth organizations and individuals from across and beyond our network talking about these challenges. We’ve now decided to create a space to learn more about young people’s messages and activities during COP26.

And by hosting the GLF Climate Hybrid Conference both digitally and in Glasgow in parallel with COP 26, we aim to ensure that youth voices will be heard during this critical time.

Let’s join forces to plant the seeds of a sustainable future.

GLF CLIMATE: FRONTIERS OF CHANGE, 5-7 NOVEMBER
🌎 Young people are standing at the frontiers of change. Alongside COP26, the GLF Climate hybrid conference will see young experts from all over the world share their innovative ideas to tackle the global climate and biodiversity crises and construct a fresh narrative to replace “business as usual” and secure a sustainable future.

Tickets are now available and are just EUR 5 for youth! Book your ticket now before the price goes up.

REGISTER NOW
Heads up: the 2022 Restoration Stewards will also be announced during the conference. Don’t miss out!
