BC3 researcher Ester Galende takes part at COY 15

Ester Galende, BC3 PhD Student working on Paris Reinforce H2020 project, took part at COY 15. The COY is a youth conference on the environmental and climatic emergency that takes place every year before the COP in which young people have the opportunity to share our experiences and unify our opinions to be able to defend them later in the negotiations.

Over the course of three days, 400 youth from 85 countries came together to demonstrate their leadership, specific knowledge, and policy platforms, in order to build the capacity of youth and prepare the constituency for COP25. Throughout the event, youth shared best practices on nature based solutions, responsible consumption, sustainable transportation, and the latest research by student activists.

Theslogan, “We Are Action”, goes a step further than the COP25 slogan, by recognizing that youth are so often the boots-on-the-ground efforts, acting as the implementation mechanism for public awareness & climate education, conducting waste management.
