The climate crisis is among the most pressing issues facing the world today and young people are at the frontlines in the fight against it.

With less than three months to COP26, the engagement of young people to demand urgent, bold, and ambitious actions on climate finance and adaptation and resilience is critical.

The leaders of the United Nations recognize the importance of working with young people to address climate change. Join us in a Youth Dialogue with the Deputy Secretary-General co-convened by the Office of the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth with the Secretary-General’s Youth Advisory Group on Climate Change and Climate Action Team on 17 September from 10:10 AM – 11:10 AM Eastern Standard Time.

This event is part of a dialogue series that serves to connect representatives of the youth population with the Deputy Secretary-General to discuss thematic issues ranging from climate to innovation and equality to health. The youth speakers are thematic experts and come from diverse backgrounds and regions. They include but are not limited to representatives from grassroots movements, international organizations, civil society, academia, and the private sector.
