Background

Young people play a key role in multilateralism. Their perspectives and solutions are necessary to advance environmental science and policy. Leading up to the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA5.2), young people from around the world will gather at one of the largest youth-focused environmental events, online and in-person in Nairobi, Kenya.

Organized by the Children and Youth Major Group accredited to UNEP, the Assembly will give youth the necessary tools to understand the processes and negotiations of UNEA and take action to tackle major global challenges.
