The first Climate Advocacy Training for Youth (CATY) was completed and six outstanding graduates were shortlisted as Hong Kong Youth Delegates. Together with CCIL’s observer team, they attended the 2021 Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP26). It was held in Glasgow, United Kingdom, from 31 October to 13 November 2021. CCIL hopes to engage more Hong Kong youths in international climate conferences, and help them to make their voices heard. In the meantime, they can encourage the Hong Kong government to take more ambitious and firm climate actions. Besides, CCIL hopes the momentum built in COP26 can be brought back to Hong Kong and encourages more Hong Kong youths to get involved in climate actions.

The Conference of Parties, known as COP, is the decision-making body responsible for monitoring and reviewing the implementation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. It brings together the 197 nations and territories – called Parties – that have signed on to the Framework Convention. The COP has met annually since 1995. The 21st Session of the COP (COP21), held in Paris, France, in December 2015, was historic in its outcome – “Paris Agreement”, as the first-ever legally binding international climate agreement.
