Recent interventions/submissions

This section provides a glimpse of collective written submissions / interventions (such as at negotiations) made by the youth constituency. For full overview, please visit the intervention and submission portal!

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

Our youth constituency is open to all youth and youth organisations interested in topics of environmental governance and conservation.
