Event Details

The Global Conference of Youth
(COY) is a yearly event under the banner of YOUNGO, the official United Nations
Climate Change youth constituency. COY aims to bring together young climate
activists from all over the world to discuss, learn from each other and
strengthen the global climate movement. 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. YOUNGO partners with local youth- and climate groups to organise a conference full of workshops,
lectures and debates. COY delegates also help to draft a policy statement,
which summarizes the demands of global youth and feeds into the COP
negotiations.

 

In 2021, COY16 is taking place
28-31 October in Glasgow, Scotland.
It will cover a wide selection of topics, ranging from creating art to indigenous knowledge to the roles of businesses and innovation. Given the current difficulties around international travel, a substantial part of the programme will be held online as well.


After a year of alarming reports on the
urgency of the climate crisis, the COP negotiations could be a turning point for
climate action: either act now or risk climate catastrophe. Young voices must
come together to demand ambitious policies and a just transition towards a
sustainable future. COY16 hopes to amplify those voices.
