19th January, 2023 02.00 p.m. - 05.00 p.m.

Colombo, Sri Lanka



Youth are key stakeholders and actors for climate action, engagement in climate policy processes, and achieving long-term resilience. Youth-led action can contribute to managing climate risks and developing innovative and transformative climate solutions that connect to local, national, and global processes, such as the Nationally Determined Contributions, National Adaptation Plans, or Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Particularly after COP27 and with a view towards COP28, it is important to scale up youth engagement and create platforms and spaces that facilitate youth participation, exchange, and cooperation.This workshop aims to discuss opportunities and co-create solutions towards developing a framework for youth engagement that links to national processes and platforms, the UNFCCC process, ACE, and existing initiatives such as the Global Youth Forum on Climate Change and the Youth Partnership on Climate Risk Management hosted by SLYCAN Trust.
