The COY is THE gathering of young people occurring every year before the conference of Heads of State on climate (Conference of Parties/COP), organized for the first time in France. This year, the COP21 has a major goal: to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate change.

Novice or expert, activist or not, everyone will find in the COY a space of exchanges, of discovery and involvement fitting their needs. The organization will make sure to facilitate young people’s mobilization and to encourage the share of experiences between participants, in a cheerful and optimistic atmosphere. Workshops will also promote existing solutions concerning environmental challenges.
