Climate Justice through the International Courts?
We are sponsoring young climate leaders to take part in a climate justice summit and training program this summer in Greece!
The Center for UN Constitutional Research is looking for two young leaders in the area of climate justice from each continent, plus small island nations, to learn about how global governance relates to climate change - and what we can do to get system change, not climate change.
We've lined up academics and experts from Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas to give their perspectives and expertise on how to get climate justice before it's too late, and let "we the peoples" govern the climate.

If you consider yourself to be a prominent young climate defender, you can apply for an
expenses-paid sponsorship. We will pick two activists from each continent + the sinking islands.
If you think you qualify for a sponsorship, do not fill out the registration form and instead Email your CV + 1-minute video of why you should be selected to firstname.lastname@example.org
Support us. If you think this international Summit is important to tackle climate governance, at the international level, and institute accountability, please support our
program and adopt a climate ambassador.
FROM CLIMATE CHANGE MARCHES TO CLIMATE AMBASSADORS
CUNCR is committed to sponsoring two young leaders from each continent plus small island developing nations. In addition to adding their own experiences and expertise to these important discussions, youth participants will benefit from training workshops on how to strengthen climate activism with a strengthened understanding of governance. Experts and academics from around the world will share their wealth of knowledge, and young leaders will be able to meet and brainstorm to share strategies and coordinate efforts globally.
Beyond the sponsored youth from each continent, any climate activists who wish to benefit from this training at their own expense or with outside funding are also very welcome to attend.
