This year the 21st Conference Of the Parties (COP21) organized by the UNFCCC takes place in Paris from 30 November until 11 December. During those two weeks; negotiators, politicians, lobbyists, scientists human & environmental rights organizations and national representatives from all the corners of the world come together to discuss the 21nd attempt to create a global agreement on the approach towards climate change. It is expected that the outcome of the COP21 will be an agreement that replaces the Kyoto-protocol and will be implemented from 2020. However, IYNF & YEE expect an agreement that does not represents the urgency of the global challenge we are already facing. We hope that we are wrong.
IYNF & YEE organize a bus from Prague to Paris to take part in the Climate March on 29 November, right before the official negotiations take place. Our main aim is to provide the possibility to go for interested people, Naturefriends, activists and whoever finds it important to attend the demonstration. We want to be present in Paris to demand an international legally binding socially just climate agreement that encourages nations to change the direction towards a more sustainable future. Together with other youth organizations we have created our demands for the COP21. The European Youth Forum will lobby within the UNFCCC negotiations to advocate for these demands, once their members have approved them.
We want to be in Paris to join the mass manifestation and show the world that we care for our planet and its inhabitants. We are convinced – as shown in history – that a demonstration attended by a lot of people can have a strong impact and put political pressure on the ones who are responsible for the creation and finalization of the climate agreement.
Although we value the participation in the demonstration in Paris a lot, we also see this weekend as the perfect opportunity to bring people from all over Europe together who care about our environment and are motivated to create and take part in activities that reflects the need to build a sustainable future. One of the main aims of IYNF is to build a network of people from all over Europe that share the values of solidarity, justice, democracy, sustainability and love and care for nature. IYNF exist with the mission to educate young people from all over Europe and provide activities that represent our Naturefriendly values. The aim of YEE is to encourage youth to be involved in environmental protection and to provide a platform where these organisations can work together.If this is the first time you come in contact with our movements, then we are glad to announce: ‘Welcome on board’!
Because we will be together with 60 people for 4 days, we would like to invite you to mingle as much as possible and enlarge your personal networks. Therefor we have created a couple of activities to get to know each other during our trip to Paris, expect the unexpected!
