Call for FYEG Delegates: COP 23
Would you like to represent FYEG at the UN Climate Change Negotiations Summer (UNFCCC) and Winter (COP23) Sessions?
As you know, in COP21 - 2015 the most significant international agreement on climate change yet was agreed by 197 countries. Up to now the agreement is signed by 194 countries (Climate Summit in NY - April 2016 - 175 countries), We believe that after COP22 in Marrakesh and also the situation in US, after Trump’s election, that is changing rapidly, it is more important than ever to push for the implementation phase to start working and not just sitting on a paper.
For FYEG, the last GA in Prague set the Climate Working Group as a priority thematic for the year. In order to have a strong message again this year after a successful one that was carried last year after COP21, FYEG will mobilise activists throughout Europe to push towards to more concrete and effective actions on the mandate of the agreement. At the same time, we will send an official delegation to the summit to follow the discussions, develop links with other groups and represent the voice of the Young Greens throughout Europe. These delegates will work closely with the FYEG Climate Working Group and the EC, and will be asked to feedback reports on these meetings.
When and where?
UNFCCC: 8 May - 18 May, Bonn - Germany
COP23: 6 Nov - 17 Nov, Bonn - Germany
FYEG will fundraise in order to cover the delegates’ expenses related to travel, accommodation and food.

All selected delegates are highly encouraged to fundraise on their own, through their Member Organisation, mother party, or other source.
