The British Council will host a two-day ‘Youth in Climate Action Virtual Conference’ on 28 and 29 October as a run-up to COP26 hosted in the UK in November.
Under the larger theme of The Climate Connection, the Youth in Climate Action Conference aims to bring young people and relevant stakeholders to hold discussions around the following thematic areas related to climate change.
- Policy engagement and public awareness on climate action
- Showcase youth engagement and advocacy
- Provide a platform and agency for youth and stakeholders to build a conversation and commitment to address climate issues
The event will contribute to set up dialogue and conversations that will lead to recommendations and ideas for the future, celebrate the success of youth leaders working on reducing climate change impact, and discuss research evidence on how young people can effectively contribute to climate action priorities set out by Government of Sri Lanka, UK and COP26.
The event will also showcase youth leaders already engaged in climate action thereby encouraging more young people to participate in climate action.
