The event, which was organized, by the youth and environment ministries, UNICEF office in Jordan, and Generations for Peace, aims to raise awareness about climate change, and involve young people in finding possible solutions to address related challenges, according to a joint statement issued by the two ministries.

Held under the aegis of YOUNGO, the official youth constituency of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the conference provides an opportunity to some 100 young men and women interested in climate action to exchange views and discussions with climate experts and then present their proposals and solutions to local and international decision makers, the statement said.

LCoY is a starting point for the 2022 UN Climate Change Conference (COP27), scheduled to be held next month in Egypt.

The two-day conference focuses on the impact of climate change on Jordan’s youth and related youth-led action.

Its activities include a panel discussion on climate education and youth engagement, an interactive session on “Climate Change — Current Global Situation and Efforts to Mitigate and Adapt”, and workshops on related challenges, policy development, and advocacy for climate action.
