Episode I


The first episode, “Taking a seat at the negotiation table,” will explore how youth-led initiatives can effectively address sustainable development and other climate action priorities. The discussion will look at key areas of COP28 — including finance and agrifood systems — and how young change-makers can have an impact in these areas. This session will feature a diverse panel of young climate leaders as well as several high-level speakers, with a focus on intergenerational collaboration.

Episode II

The second episode, “Bringing youth-led action to the global climate agenda,” will look at how successful local climate actions can have impact globally. Guests from civil society organizations and youth-led movements will come together to brainstorm strategies for transforming lessons learned from local action into national and international policy proposals — and for getting these proposals through the maze of red tape to be seriously considered by policymakers.

Episode III

The final episode of the series, “Envisioning the COP of our dreams,” will challenge participants to work together to share their vision for an ideal COP. This episode won’t shy away from the failings of past COPs. What structural and ideological changes would benefit the existing system? How can the international community come together more effectively to take the high-impact, large-scale climate action we so desperately need?
