Young people all around the world can now apply for a fully-funded ticket to attend the Youth4Climate: Driving Ambition event in Milan, Italy!

Convened by the Government of Italy, the event will take place from September 28th to 30th and provide young delegates an unprecedented opportunity 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-COP26.

How to attend?

Interested young people between the ages of 15-29 can submit an application detailing the ways you are working with and leading other young people to advance climate action (deadline February 28th).

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. Around 400 applicants (2 from each UNFCCC country) will be selected to participate, in addition to a single winner from the #SumItUp competition.
