Translated title: Our Climate! Our Future! - Youth Dialogue on the Occasion of the 23rd UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn
Climate change and its consequences represent one of the greatest challenges of our time. Humanity's role in global warming is becoming increasingly visible, natural disasters are becoming more common, and island nations like Fiji are struggling for survival. Government representatives from almost every country in the world therefore come together every year for the UN Climate Conference, or Conference of the Parties (COP).
In November 2017, the 23rd UN Climate Change Conference (COP 23) took place in Bonn. On this occasion, the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) invited young people between the ages of 16 and 25 to discuss climate action and policies. Today's young generation will be particularly affected by climate change and the results of current climate policy. With the youth dialogue "Our Climate! Our future! ", BMU aimed to make the perspectives of young people on climate change and climate action visible. The aim was to engage young people with the further development of German climate policy, and to raise awareness of decision-makers - including internationally - to the ideas, needs and views of the younger generation
