Call for Participants: FYEG Delegation to COP26 (CLOSED)

Would you like to represent FYEG at the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference and other meetings that prelude the Conference?

The 26th Climate Change Conference is planned to take place in Glasgow, Scotland between 1 - 12 November 2021, after it has been postponed for one year due to the coronavirus pandemic. We have been living with the global pandemic for one year now and the next global crisis, the climate crisis is also here.

The Climate summit this year, in Glasgow, Scotland, UK, is a key moment for our fight for climate justice. For the first time since the Paris Agreement, countries have to update their plans and commitments in fighting climate change. This year, in addition to taking part in actions and mobilisation, FYEG will have an official delegation, inside the negotiations. Will you be our climate justice warrior on the spot?

Are you interested, inspired and involved in the effort for climate justice? Do you have the time, skills and knowledge to represent FYEG at COP this year?
