COY8 will take place November 23-25 at the Qatar Foundation Student Centre in Doha, Qatar.
The annual Conference of Youth brings young people from around the world together to learn about the UNFCCC, build networks and organize ourselves before the UN climate negotiations. COY aims to deliver a conference that seasoned campaigners and beginners alike can attend, providing a platform for us to learn from each other on how to address the pressing environmental issues of our generation.
More than 400 youth attend COY7 last year in Durban, South Africa before COP17. Highlights included welcoming the We Have Faith climate justice caravan, dancing to and filming Shakira’s “Waka Waka (Time For Africa)” and creating the youth climate network that would take COP17 by storm.
Registration to attend COY8 will open November 1 – check back for updates! Thanks and hope to see you in Doha!
