LCOY Working Group

ANTECEDENTES

Desde el principio, los jóvenes han participado activamente en las Conferencias de las Partes (COP) organizadas por la Convención Marco de las Naciones Unidas sobre el Cambio Climático (CMNUCC).

En 2005, se reunieron formalmente en Montreal antes de la COP11 para hacer oír su voz, creando así la primera Conferencia de la Juventud (COY). En 2009, durante la COP15, la secretaría de la CMNUCC y los estados miembros de la Convención reconocieron oficialmente a los jóvenes como un grupo de observadores propios (confirmando el estado en 2011), para representar la voz formal de la niñez y la juventud en los procesos de la CMNUCC. La circunscripción se conoce como YOUNGO.

PRINCIPLES of LCOY

SUPPORT

The most important role of this working group is to empower and support young people who want to make a difference in their communities.

CONSENT

All decisions are made by consent. However, responsibilities can be delegated to specific groups that can then act autonomously.

TRANSPARENCY

Meaningful participation by all is only possible if we are transparent about the processes and our decisions.

EQUITY

We actively welcome each and every young person, no matter what background they have and with what level of experience they join.

LEARNING

Both as a group and as its members, we have to experiment, make mistakes, and learn continuously.

EMPOWERMENT

Empowering climate leaders by helping them to set up LCOYs in their countries and regions.​

COORDINATION

Coordinating and developing the interactions between LCOYs, the global COY, and wider YOUNGO processes.

CONCEPT

Further developing the concept of LCOYs to build a strong global youth movement rooted in local action.
