LCOY Local Conferences of Youth By Youth, for youth is taking place in the UAE this year, on a 2-day event 1st and 2nd October, 2022 at Dubai Youth Hub, Emirates Towers Boulevard, Trade Center 2. Organized by a group of students and climate activists based in the UAE (LCOY UAE).
Local Conference of Youth (LCOY) is an event under the umbrella of YOUNGO, the official youth constituency of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Its aims are to be a space to boost youth climate action locally and create an input into the international conference. It represents a national version of the international Conference of Youth (COY), which takes place immediately before the Conference of Parties (COP), the annual UN-Climate Conference. Its principals are capacity building and empowerment, transparency, inclusivity, sustainability, youth engagement, community-building, preparation for United Nations process, global action and spirit of cooperation and creativity.
LCOY UAE represents the formal voices of youth throughout the Emirates by the youth of the United Arab Emirates for the youth. We are a diverse range of young people from across the UAE, including activists, sustainable organization founders, environmentalists, and youth leaders developing youth leadership and multi-sectoral collaboration for the local climate action focused on climate related topics which are fed into the Global COY and into the climate negotiations.
The LCOY UAE 2-day event will feature presentations, panel discussions and workshops on climate change, and the opportunity to network with local climate activists. Event outline here
