What we did
From the 19th November to the 1st December we filled the void of the postponed COP26 with a big, inclusive online Mock COP. The event was run by young climate activists and had over 330 delegates from over 140 counties. The conference had a focus on the Global South and comprised of empowering and informative keynotes and panels by global names and youth activists, followed by high-level opening statements by the youth delegates and facilitated workshops and regional caucuses. The discussions were framed around five conference themes: climate justice; education; health and mental health; green jobs; carbon reduction targets. The event culminated in a powerful conference statement to world leaders from the youth of the world, raising ambition for COP26. We are now supporting and mentoring delegates to engage their domestic politicians in the year to COP26.
