COP24 (The 24th Conference of Parties) is the annual United Nations Climate Change Conference where world leaders, ministers, civil society organizations, youth, industry, and indigenous peoples gather to discuss the most pressing issue of the 21st century: Climate change.

Several UBC alumni and students had the pleasure of attending COP24 as part of the British Columbia Council for International Cooperation (BCCIC) Youth Delegation. We are eager to share our experiences, learnings, setbacks, and hopes for the future with anyone interested in the UBC community and beyond.

We often hear that youth are the next generation, that we have the power to create change. But what does this 'power' actually look like? What were the most pressing topics discussed at COP this year? How do we keep our governments accountable on a federal, provincial, local level?

If you are interested in any of these topics, or wanting to see how you can get more involved in the United Nations process, come out to our Post COP24 Engagement Showcase at UBC filled with delicious vegan treats, a panel discussion with the delegates, round table discussions, and a networking session!
