Webinar on youth involvement

Online Event on 19 May 2021, 16.00-18.00

Webinar on youth involvement in climate activities in the Alps

(An event of the Alpine Climate Board)

What role do young people play in the implementation processes of climate activities in the Alps? Which role(s) do young people see for themselves in these processes? What do they need to act? And what are key elements for their fruitful involvement? We will raise and discuss these and many more questions with young representatives from the Alpine area and beyond.

The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, 19 May 2021, 16.00-18.00, online: https://zoom.us/j/91530345215?pwd=UzNuc3RyY3JHOG11dDlCckhFNEM1Zz09
