We understand that working out whether you are able to commit to joining us on this journey is quite a decision. No doubt, you have a few questions on your mind.
Take a look through some of the info we have put together for you here and see if you find what you are looking for.
Needless to say, if you don’t find the answers you need, feel free to send us an email.
The (26th) Conference of the Parties, the largest international political conference on climate change. Countries which signed the UNFCCC are known as “Parties to the Convention.” These countries meet regularly to discuss their progress and negotiate new solutions. COP is the largest of these meetings and happens about once per year. In 2021, the 26th COP will be held in Glasgow, Scotland.
The COP26 takes place from 1-12 November 2021
The COP26 takes place in Glasgow, Scotland.
The ‘Glasgow Climate Education Summit’, an event organised by the Climate Collage in partnership with the COY16
The Climate Education Kick-off (aka CEKO) is a unifying event that offers exactly that: the opportunity to train hundreds of students on climate science.
The (16th) Conference of Youth. An official YOUNGO event in preparation for the COP where young people from all over the world come together to help tackle climate change. The organisation of this event is done entirely by young people too. The 16th version of COY will take place towards the end of 2021.
As many as you like.
You will have time off for sure! This is volunteer work, not forced labor!
YES! We will need brains and hands also from afar. For example video editors, proofreader as we aim at communicating A LOT when we’re here. Check out which working group you’d like to be part of, we have plenty of work to share 🙂
This does not make us happy either. To be 100% transparent, this is because, as an association, the Climate Collage already operates with limted funding. All volunteers are working on a best case scenario, which would be that the association pays for transport and food. But as of today, it is impossible for us to make any promise on that.
It depends on the airbnb/youth hostel booking terms and conditions. It also depends on the association’s cash flow and on the reason why the participation is cancelled. We hope to guarantee at least a 40% refund. If someone else can take your spot, it should be possible for you to be fully refunded. We navigate in the dark and we are really grateful if you’re still considering joining the adventure despite this.
We are still the same! We just changed our name ;)
