Pre-COP Youth Forum

Colombo, Sri Lanka



Climate change is one of the biggest challenges affecting children and youth today, especially in developing countries with low incomes, large rural populations, reliance on natural resources, and less robust risk management and safety nets. Empowering youth in climate action and engaging youth to play a key role in building resilience to climate change through active and meaningful participation are key elements to enhance climate action. Under the United Nations Framework for Climate Change (UNFCCC), the role and contribution of youth to address adverse impacts of climate change is recognised and addressed through Action for Climate Empowerment and other work under Article 6 of the UNFCCC and Article 12 of the Paris Agreement. Climate negotiations are a key focus in ensuring that youth voices are heard and integrated into global decision making processes. Recognising the importance of the role of youth in climate action and in climate negotiations, Global Youth Forum on Climate Change (GYFCC) implemented by SLYCAN Trust Youth is co-organizing with UNICEF a Pre-COP27 Youth Forum, ahead of the 27th Conference of Parties of the UNFCCC which will be held in Egypt in November 2022. The event aims to highlight the role of youth in COP27 and to facilitate and support the better engagement of youth in climate negotiations as well as climate action.
