What is LCOY?
Local Conference of Youth (LCOY) is an initiative of YOUNGO since 2014, with the aims to empower youth through networking and knowledge-sharing. LCOY organisers bring the annual climate negotiations to their home countries and make sure that words are turned into action. At LCOYs, young people connect to each other, teach, learn, and organise themselves to make their voices heard to our state leaders. LCOYs form a network in which youth can connect across borders and explore ways to collaborate on a regional and global level. Click here to learn more about LCOY.
What is YOUNGO?
YOUNGO (Youth + NGO) is the official youth and children NGOs constituency of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Founded in 2009, it is a youth-led non-hierarchical consensus-based platform. It serves as both the official conduit for youth participation in the UN climate talks and as a global network of youth and youth-focused organizations working on climate change.
