The twenty first session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 21) will be held in Paris from 30 November to 11 December, 2015. The focus of the discussion would be the legally binding universal agreement on climate change to be implemented from 2020.
To represent voices of youth in the intergovernmental negotiation processes, YOUNGO (of which IYCN is a part) an observer constituency of youth non-governmental organizations of UNFCCC organizes the preparatory meeting called Conference of Youth (COY). This year the COY 11 will be held simultaneously in Paris and different cities around the world prior to COP 21, from 26th to 28th November. The Centre for Environment Education (CEE) and the Indian Youth Climate Network (IYCN) are bringing COY to Ahmedabad. It is the first regional COY covering South Asia and will be held at the beautiful and inspiring CEE campus in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
The aim is to generate an unprecedented mobilization, to build a real momentum, and strengthen the visibility of actions and the expertise of young people in favor of a more sustainable and desirable lifestyle. A manifesto will be prepared on the basis of inputs received from the participants of COY from around the world. These inputs will be shared with the world leaders during COP 21.
This COY is special!!
The goal is to
- Sensitize and familiarize participants to the global challenge of climate change and measures taken to address it
- Share experiences of initiatives taken by youth and inspire participants to take positive actions
- Build capacity of participants enabling them to take positive actions and be the change agents
- Provide a platform for south Asian youth to articulate their concerns collectively for a better tomorrow.
We invites youth (between the age of 18-35years) to come and be a part of this amazing journey.
Registration closes on 20th November, 2015.
