The will get skills and training about climate policy and negotiations, international relations, and awareness about climate change and decision making processes around the globe.
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.
