Leaders' Event: Youth & Education - The Latent Force of Climate Action
Conference I Elevating youth and underrepresented voices in the UNFCCC process is a key priority of the COP28
Presidency. The Youth and Education event at the WCAS will bring together Heads of State, Heads of
Delegation, non-state actors, youth and children, and educators from diverse backgrounds to establish
mechanisms for upscaling the role and solidifying the vital voices of youth and educators in addressing the
climate crisis. Youth and children will share their vision for climate policy and ambition for COP28 and
beyond, including through the Global Youth Statement. The event will also spotlight the need to fund
climate education and build resilience in education systems and highlight the importance of the education climate nexus.
