Description 

The event will be online and we will organize 3 blocks of negotiations for the 40   youth delegates. We will make a opening and we are looking for a guest   speaker to open the negotiations, this guest speaker can be someone from the   UK embassy in Colombia, and the Italy embassy, for example. This event connects with ACE because as   precedent activities each youth delegate has to attend educational sessions   to prepare their research and national position for the cop 26 simulation, as   in the reality. It will provide the knowledge for climate policy, uNFCCC   negotiations, discourse preparations, climate diplomacy, among others.
