Up-to-date Programme


9am - 10am Registration

10am - 10.30am Introduction to COY from COY organisers. Run through the agenda for the three days. Run through housekeeping things like nametags, what YOUNGO working groups are and how they work, introduce the idea of a unified youth campaign, outline how translation will work.

10.30am - 11.00am Get to know you games and activities.

11.00am - 11.30am Morning tea

11.30am - 12.30pm Big presentation session on the history of youth at COP - 10minute presentation on each of Montreal, Nairobi, Bali, Poznan and Copenhagen (this should be prepared beforehand and only one person should speak on each topic/year - we should ensure a diverse spread of languages and countries are represented in the presenters).

12.30pm - 1.30pm Lunch

1.30pm - 3.00pm Workshops

Split into two streams: basic and advanced. Basic - crash course in COP/UNFCCC. Advanced - a range of specific workshops or presentations - topics could include what to expect out of COP16, specific policy or technical issues. This session should be focused on COP specifically - we will do more movement building and skills workshops in the next 2 days.

3.00pm - 3.30pm Afternoon tea

3.30pm-4pm Introduction to Working Groups (speed-dating or another process could be used) so that people have a bit of info about them and a chance to ask questions of the leaders before joining in. They wouldn't need to join until Sat or Sun which gives everyone a chance to discuss with their delegations.

4.00pm - 5.30pm Meet and greet with other NGOs.

Evening Free time/no planned activities (Party?, Some offers for other getting-to-know-each-other activities, dancing class, games, beach at night...?)


10am - 11.30am Presentation from one person from each country or youth climate organisation represented at COY about what they do in their home countries on climate change. This is so we get a flavour for who everyone is but also so we can get inspired and is a chance to ask questions about successful projects and campaigns in each country. It's also a great intro for those who have just turned up and didn't come on Friday.

11.30am - 12.00pm Morning tea

12.00-1.00pm Regional break-outs - facilitated with get to know you activities, specific questions to ask and specific things to share. Need a facilitator for each region!

1.00pm - 2.00pm Lunch (chance to continue regional break-outs if people want to)

2.00pm - 3.30pm Workshops, again many on offer with different levels catered for, people pick and choose which ones they want to attend. These workshops should focus more on movement-stuff, not COP-related stuff. Examples for basic workshops: campaign strategy, communicating climate change, basic media and messaging. Examples for advanced workshops: skillshares on specific topics like direct action, election organising, online organising.

3.30pm - 4.00pm Afternoon tea

4.00pm - 5.30pm YOUNGO working groups, including a session on a unified youth campaign Some workshops as well (repeats of the above, and open space for spontaneous workshops) for those who don't want to attend YOUNGO working groups

Evening: Fun social event! Not too structured. perhaps: Saturday evening the social event, we planned that each delegation would have a game prepared. Something short, about 10min long and run by one or two people, our delegates would play the game and move on to a different station like a big circle.


10.00am - 11.00am Presentation by COY organisers - re-cap of the first two days, decisions that have been made, reportbacks from YOUNGO working groups and unified youth campaign working group.

11.00am - 11.30am Morning tea break

11.30 - 12.30 Working Groups meet. Regional breakouts again for everyone else - e.g. chance for entire global south to meet, or chance to meet other people who are relevant to you if needed (i.e. small island states breakout)

12.30pm - 1.30pm Lunch

1.30pm - 3.00pm

  • YOUNGO working groups
  • Unified youth campaign working group
  • Workshops - similar to Saturday, movement-building workshops, skillshares, knowledge workshops, etc. One of these could be a session just for leaders of each organisation/coalition to come together and share learnings.
  • There could also be a session on big-picture thinking and discussion, like Kirk from NZ has been mentioning

3.00pm - 3.30pm Afternoon tea break

3.30pm - 5.00pm

Evening No planned activities. Rest for tomorrow!

Things missing

  • Somebody to work on the games for Saturday, the getting to know each other on Friday etc.
  • Real intensive "get to know each other" time and activities in the beginning (not Saturday evening, that's already halfway through the conference)
  • time for planning campaign at COP16 (Recomendations for strategizing as Official Youth Delegates Network by Madalena and Mantas and Creative Campaigns Strategy: A Short History/ Collaborative Discussion by Reed Aronow are going into that direction)
  • time for setting up decision making structure and communications channels for COP16
  • time for presenting alternative spaces' programmes and working groups coming out ot COY that want to continue to work during Cancun - have a big schedule on the wall where you can see everything that will be going on (and have the same on the internet)
