WHAT WE DO

We advocate for inclusion, empowerment and meaningful engagement of young people in environmental processes, especially those of UNEP and UNEAs. 

 

This is done through four areas of work: policy-advocacy, knowledge sharing, capacity-building and youth action; and different engagement avenues.
