The “Youth4Climate: Driving Ambition” special event is being held ahead of the 26th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 26) to the UNFCCC, which is taking place from 1-12 November 2021, in Glasgow, UK. Part of the pre-COP26 events for COP26 happening in Glasgow, Scotland, the Milan pre-COP is convened by the Government of Italy to provide young delegates an opportunity to present ideas and proposals on pressing issues on the climate agenda.

The first two days of Youth4Climate: Driving Ambition will be for working groups, while the last day will feature a discussion between young delegates and the Ministers attending Pre-COP26.

Experienced young climate leaders are encouraged to submit their application for a chance to be one of two young people representing their country in Milan. Youth with creative communications skills and digital storytelling experience are invited to enter the #SumItUp competition, where one winner will be chosen to travel to Milan and participate in Youth4Climate.
