In the run-up to the UN Climate Change Conference in Marrakech (07 Nov – 18 Nov 2016), the International Association for the Advancement of Innovative Approaches to Global Challenges IAAI – an UNFCCC and UN ECOSOC accredited civil society organization based in Klagenfurt am Wörthersee (Austria) – is organizing a resource mobilization campaign for youth climate action (hashtag #GiveYouthaChance).
The campaign calls for resources
- for youth participation in UNFCCC processes
- for UN system’s programs on youth empowerment for climate action and
- for an Agenda2030 youth action marketplace that will empower young people for local climate action in a globally coordinated manner and connect them with blended financing from local and global public, private and philanthropic sources.
