The seminar "Youth in Action for the climate" will be held in Paris, France during the COP 21.

The main topic of the seminar will be to give the young people an opportunity to share their opinion, knowledge, national projects, fears and solutions around the climate change. The group will visit different places in Paris related to the thematic: COP 21 village, different environment projects in the city, exhibitions,...

The YMCA Resource Group on Environment will also be organising YMCA participation during COP 21 (30 November - 11 December) for advocacy around Climate Issues. This will be an opportunity as well for YMCAs to engage young leaders with this historic UN Conference.
