Event description
A free online event, run by young people, for young people, surrounding the issues of climate change faced by our people across the globe.

About this Event

In the run-up to COP-26, the UNA Climate and Oceans Youth Council has organised an exciting youth event addressing some of the key issues facing our planet today.

During the event, you will hear from expert speakers and those impacted by climate issues directly, covering a range of topics:

  • Oceans and Biodiversity
  • Food and Agriculture
  • Environmental Justice
  • COP-26 and Alternative Methods to Fighting Climate Change

Students and young professionals from our Youth Council will be introducing speakers, leading panel discussions, and asking your questions. The event will also feature inspiring displays of artwork in between the speakers.

Speakers include:

  • Delaney Reynolds of the Sink or Swim Project whose work focuses on ecology and sea-level rise
  • Love The Oceans, a marine conservation project based in Mozambique
  • Erika Pires Ramos of Red Sudamericana para las Migraciones Ambientales, a lawyer from Brazil who has dedicated her life to protecting environmental refugees
  • Camryn Banks, a victim of the Flint water crisis and activist, who is now studying to earn a BA in Public Policy
  • Nahuala Indómita, an eco-feminist collective from Mexico who explore the link between climate change and gender oppression
  • Josh Tregale of Mock COP, an event prior to COP26 that shines a light on youth voices from around the world
  • The Cascade Team, an up and coming app that will prompt users to complete daily challenges that will minimize their carbon footprint

As well as providing food for thought, we aim for attendees to actively get involved with UNA Climate and Oceans, and with the global youth climate movement. We will introduce you to our International Youth Ambassadors, and gather your views, which we will then collate into a report which is to be sent to COP-26 leaders and the UN Secretary General, António Guterres. By sharing these reports to those with global platforms, we are ensuring that you have your voice heard by those in power. You will also have the opportunity to be part of a global network of young people organised by us, the UNA Climate and Oceans Youth Council.

You can find the UNA Climate and Oceans via our website, Instagram and Facebook.

We look forward to meeting you!
