YOUTH ASSEMBLY ON CLIMATE
MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD
Ireland's young people have been leading the way on climate, and now the country is listening as never before. Through strikes and demos you’ve helped to make climate issues a national talking point. Now there’s an opportunity to take conversation to the heart of decision making!
On Friday November 15th the country’s first ever Youth Assembly on Climate is set to take place in Dáil Éireann. It will be a chance for young people to discuss what Ireland needs to do to take action on climate and environmental issues.
157 young people will be selected to take part in this one-day Youth Assembly, and you could be one of them. The selected delegates will get together in groups, with a facilitator, to work out exactly what their proposals are on climate action. They’ll get a chance to present their views to our elected officials.
The final session, in the historic Dáil Chamber, will be broadcast on RTÉ News Now and Oireachtas TV.
If you have a real interest in climate issues and you’d like to be part of this important event, fill out the Application Form, and tell us why you want to have your say.
