Global Voices in Glasgow

As part of our demands for climate justice, we emphasize the need to improve the representation of voices from the Global South. 

 

This is why UKYCC's COP Working Group supported individuals and groups from around the world in gaining accreditation to COP 26. 

 

In total, we helped 12 individuals, from across 4 groups gain access to an exclusive space. Meet some of them below:

What I will be fighting at COP26: As the COP has been considered one of the most important moments of the last years in relation to what countries will commit to do in order to mitigate the climate emergency we are facing, my main fight will be the inclusion of the youth of the world in the decision making about our future, considering necessary the participation of young people who suffer the most from climate change, such as native and indigenous populations of the countries and the effectiveness of their demands in domestic policies.

What I will be fighting at COP26: I am fighting for the current generation and for all species that have not had a chance to change the system before and have not chosen to live in a climate crisis, as well as for the right to exist for future generations and for the future of humanity that is already doomed to failure if it continues with the same system and the same excuses and outdated solutions to stop the climate crisis.
