Aiming Higher: Elevating Meaningful Youth Engagement for Climate Action
This guidance explores what meaningful youth engagement in climate action looks like, both conceptually and practically. It does this by identifying dimensions and pathways that support meaningful youth participation and by providing actionable recommendations for climate action in general and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) implementation specifically. The guidance builds upon UNDP's knowledge and experience working with young people and was developed after extensive consultations with global youth climate actors.
This guidance also offers best practices and recommendations on how young people, climate change practitioners, governments, and development actors can join forces for youth-inclusive and youth-led partnerships to achieve the Paris Agreement and to ensure that the world we leave to the future generations is clean, green, sustainable, and healthy.
