COP 26 – Young Climate Activists
Thursday 6th May 2021
Young climate activists from the UK and Nicaragua discuss their hopes, fears and demands for COP 26
When last year’s COP (UN Climate Change Conference) was delayed by 12 months, young people from around the world called their own ‘Mock COP’. Delegates from 140 countries put together and voted through their own treaty with 18 policies/demands for COP 26.
For our own COP 26 webinar, we were delighted to host a group of young climate activists from the UK and Nicaragua who were drawn together by our partner CEPAD.
They identified which aspects of the Mock COP 26 treaty were most important to them and what they were doing to pressure governments to adopt them. They also share what they would like us to do.
