The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) will hold the 12th edition of its yearly youth event ‘Your Europe, Your Say’ (YEYS) on 18-19 March 2021, on the topic of climate change, in the form of an online model COP (Conference of the Parties) in which more than 100 students from 33 countries will take part.
In line with the organisation of a COP, the EESC is planning a side event for young people on 20 March 2021, in the form of a public virtual event on social media.
The aim of the side event is to bring several experts, activists and influencers together to share their knowledge and expertise regarding climate change in the context of systemic change. This will provide our young audience with valuable new insights and the opportunity to express their vision and ideas.
Different panels will be held, explaining what systemic change is, the mechanisms to implement it and concrete, personal examples of sustainable activities that have the potential to drive systemic change.
