Youth4Climate call for applications - spreading the word across EAP region
Young people all around the world can now apply for a fully-funded ticket to attend the Youth4Climate: Driving Ambition event in Milan, Italy! The deadline was just extended to March 14th and we’d love your help in sharing the invitation to apply with young people in your network.
Convened by the Government of Italy, the event will take place from 28 to 30 September and will provide an unprecedented opportunity for young delegates to put forward ideas and concrete proposals on some of the most pressing issues on the climate agenda. The first two days will be dedicated to working groups, while the last day will feature a discussion between young delegates and the Ministers attending pre-COP 26.
Interested young people can either:
- Submit an application by March 14th, detailing the ways you are working with and leading other young people to advance climate action. Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Enter the #SumItUp Competition, by submitting a creative sum-up of your favorite #Youth4ClimateLive episode before the March 31st deadline.
The application and the competition provide young people two opportunities to be part of this historic event, whether they are experienced climate activists or just starting their climate advocacy journey. To be eligible to attend, applicants must be between the ages of 15 and 29 and, if selected, all applicants under the age of 18 must be accompanied to the event by a chaperone.
Experienced young climate leaders are encouraged to submit their application for a chance to be one of two young people representing their country in Milan. Youth with creative communication skills and digital storytelling experience are invited to enter the #SumItUp Competition, where one winner will be chosen to travel to Milan and participate in the Youth4Climate event.
We would greatly appreciate you sharing this news with the young people in your network so they have the opportunity to be a part of this landmark youth event.
