We have just closed our recruitment process for our US youth delegation to the 2016 UN Climate Negotiations, more complicatedly known as COP22, the 22nd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. This conference will take place November 7-18, 2016 in Marrakech, Morocco.
We are looking for a team of action-oriented advocates and story tellers. As youth delegates, they’ll learn how to work with the media and develop your own voice. We collaborate with activists from around the world and build deep community within our team. They’ll lobby government negotiators, plan attention-grabbing actions, and tell game-changing stories that shift the narrative on international climate politics — all the while building skills and stories they will bring home to strengthen your own work and campaigns.
This year’s application process for our SustainUS youth delegation to COP22 was a Creative Challenge. The challenge launched on April 12, and ran through June 5. We have now closed the challenge, and are no longer able to accept applications.
