Climate Mobility Pavilion at COP28
The Global Centre for Climate Mobility (GCCM) is hosting the Climate Mobility Pavilion (CMP) at COP28 in Dubai from 30 November to 10 December. The CMP will be a central space dedicated to bringing urgent global attention to climate-forced migration & displacement, pressing forward the need for people-centered climate action.  

Climate Mobility Pavilion Youth Programme
The GCCM’s Youth Forums, under the Africa Climate Mobility Initiative, the Rising Nations Initiative, and the Greater Caribbean Climate Mobility Initiative, are now opening a call for applications to the CMP Youth Programme to participate in COP28 as a CMP Youth Delegate.

The CMP Youth Programme will bring together a group of young people to advance climate action focusing on the most climate-vulnerable regions in the world. Delegates selected to participate in the programme will be offered capacity building, speaking opportunities, and to take part in bilateral meetings with leading policymakers as well as climate action champions from philanthropic organisations, the private sector, and civil society organisations. 

Up to 40 delegates will be selected through this application process for the CMP Youth Programme. The CMP Youth Programme will ensure gender equality in its composition of delegates as well as the inclusion of a wide array of experiences with climate impacts and mobility, especially from the most climate-vulnerable communities. Applications will be collected through this form only. The expenses for return travel to COP28 (economy-class flight travel) and accommodation during the stay at COP28 will be covered for selected Youth Delegates.

We are looking for two profiles of Youth Delegates – apply in the category that you feel best suits your interests and qualifications!
