Local Conference of Youth Poland 2019 is the first ever LCOY hosted in Poland. Following a great success of Global COY in Katowice last year, we decided to bring the environment of learning and discussing about climate change to the Silesia region again.
We hope to gather between 150 and 200 participants for two days full of workshops, lectures and discussions. It will be a chance for you to meet other youth passionate about environmental issues and learn from leading figures in areas ranging from activism to green economy.
Our mission is youth empowerment, capacity-building and raising awareness. Our goal is bringing the whole youth climate movement together and encouraging its members to work towards a better world.
Our event is a part of the global Conference of Youth movement. This year, 14 conferences just like ours will take place in 14 countries on 6 continents. This global mobilization will be followed by Global Conference of Youth in Santiago, Chile right before heads of states from around the world will gather there for the annual UN climate change conference, COP. We are excited to be a part of this movement and you can join us in this journey!
