As youth become increasingly aware of the challenges and opportunities in transitioning to a low carbon growth, many are joining the global dialogue finding solutions, getting involved and taking action. Young people between the ages of 14 and 18 are not only highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change but they are also tomorrow’s business leaders, decision makers, and consumers.

The Youth Climate Dialogues (YCDs) were launched in the run-up to the Conference of the Parties (COP21) in December 2015, which was held in Paris, France. YCDs are a joint initiative of UN CC:Learn and the Swiss Development Cooperation (SDC) which aims to provide a forum for youth both in Switzerland and UN CC: Learn partner countries to share their views on climate change. 

YCDs usually take the form of a debate and video-conference between schools in different parts of the world. During the event, students discuss how they perceive climate change, how it affects their lives, and what actions they consider they could implement. 

The Youth Climate Dialogues is an initiative of the Swiss Development Cooperation (SDC) and The One UN Climate Change Learning Partnership (UN CC:Learn) that aims to provide a forum for youth both in Switzerland and UN CC:Learn partner countries to share their views about climate change. Young people between the ages of 14 and 18 are not only highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change but they are also tomorrow’s business leaders, decision makers, and consumers. Thus, it is important to give them a channel to share their views. This event will involve students from Lycée Claude de France of Romorantin, France and the Lycée Philippe Zinda Kaboré of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
