What is COY13?

Empowering youth for climate action

The 13th Conference of Youth (COY13) will take place in Bonn from November 2 to November 4, 2017 and welcomes young activists and other interested individuals from all around the world to join COY. COY13 is organised by young volunteers and intends to empower youth with regard to climate justice, climate policy and sustainability through a multilingual programme consisting of methodical and content-related sessions.

COY13 will provide space to exchange knowledge and experiences, build new networks and movements, develop creative ideas and prepare for the subsequent 23rd Conference of Parties (COP23) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

COP23 is this year’s international climate summit, taking place in Bonn under the presidency of Fiji.

 WANTED: Helpers for COY13

Keen to help out at COY13? Then register now!

To make the conference the best it can be, the organizing team of COY13 is now looking for motivated volunteers, who want to help with operational tasks during COY13. These tasks range from helping during the registration of participants to preparing the opening and closing ceremony to helping program contributors when they have questions about the organization to help clearing rooms for programme points to all other things that have to be done.
