Application Deadline: June 30th 2015
Do you want to get involved in the discussion on the next universal agreement on climate change?
From 26 to 28 November, only a few days before the COP21, 5000 young people from all around the world will gather for the 11th Conference of Youth. Not only this event will be one of the biggest gatherings of youth in France, but it will also lead to an unprecedented mobilization in the field of international climate negotiations.
The Conference Of Youth 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.
During 3 days, almost 5000 young people are expected for an unprecedented mobilization, to build a real momentum, and strengthen the visibility of actions and the expertise of young people in favor of a more sustainable and desirable lifestyle.
The call for projects is open to all, whether you are an organisation, a charity, a social enterprise, an educational institute, an individual, as long as you recognise yourself in the message conveyed by the 11th COY.
Priority is given to projects led by young people or driven by an inter-generational purpose.
Each project must possess human and material resources specific to its realization (except for basic furniture).
A list of the required furniture (tables, chairs, projector, etc.) should be sent to the organizers within the same time limit as the applications, otherwise the availability of this equipment will not be guaranteed.
Finally, profit-making activities for commercial gain will not be accepted.
The organization of the COY11 is coordinate by several youth associations with strong environmental engagement: Avenir Climatique, CliMates, Fédération du Scoutisme Français, REFEDD, the movement WARN! and YOUNGO.
