YOUNGO Global South Scholarships to attend COP23 and COY13 in Bonn, Germany!

Deadline: August 24, 2017

YOUNGO is now accepting applications for the Global South Scholarships. This is an opportunity for youth from the Global South Countries to receive complete financial support and capacity building training to participate at UNFCCC’s 23rd Conference Of Parties (COP23)  and 13th Conference Of Youth (COY13) in November, 2017 in Bonn, Germany!

YOUNGO is the official youth constituency to UNFCCC – and serves as the formal collective voice of youth for all UNFCCC processes. Youth were given the constituency status within UNFCCC in 2009.

In light of the barriers facing the participation of youth from the Global South, the GSS 2017 will provide the necessary financial resources to enable more young people to attend COY13 and COP23 who otherwise would not have the opportunity. Alongside covering the costs of their participation (travel, accommodation, food, etc), the GSS 2017 will also provide a robust capacity building program to empower Global South participation which is effective, rather than tokenistic.

  • Participate in a comprehensive capacity-building programme
  • Share your experiences and raise your voice at international level
