Between the 19th November and the 1st December 2020 we are running a youth led, youth run online conference that will show the world what would happen if young people were the decision makers. We will be following a similar structure to the postponed COP26 climate summit to raise the ambition of our leaders when it comes to tackling the climate emergency.
From the 19th November to the 1st December we will fill the void of the postponed COP26 with a big, inclusive online Mock COP. The event will be run by young climate activists and we aim to get between 3 and 5 delegates from as many countries as we can, with a focus on the Global South. The two-week event will comprise empowering and informative keynotes and panels by global names and youth activists, followed by high-level opening statements by the youth delegates and facilitated workshops and regional caucuses. The discussions will be framed around five conference themes: climate justice; education; health and mental health; green jobs; carbon reduction targets. The event will culminate in a powerful conference statement to world leaders from the youth of the world, raising ambition for COP26. We will subsequently support and mentor delegates to engage their domestic politicians in the year to COP26.
