UN Youth Advisory Group on Climate Change

Last updated: 2 August 2023

The UN Youth Advisory Group on Climate Change consists of seven young environmental activists from all across the world. In a context of ever-rising international youth climate activism, the UN Secretary General established this group in July 2020 to ensure young people’s voices are represented at the highest levels of UN climate negotiations. Since its creation, the group has provided advice on the implementation of the UN Secretary General’s climate change strategy for 2020-21. Following an extensive international consultation process with other young climate leaders, the group also published a ‘Global Youth Outreach’ report in December 2020, summarising young people’s top climate concerns and their views on the most urgent actions world leaders should undertake in 2021. These processes have ensured active participation and recognition of young people in clean energy and climate change debates.
