The World Bank

The Youth Summit 2015 will focus on young people’s role in the fight against climate change. The event will gather exceptional future leaders to tell the story of climate change and inspire communities everywhere to take action.

We are looking for inspirational young people to showcase their ideas and enhance their knowledge on climate action.

The Youth Summit 2015 will be a two-day event taking place on November 16 & 17.

Day 1 (November 16) – Plenary Discussion and Sessions

The first day of the Summit will provide training on climate change related topics. The day will start with a dynamic high level plenary session which aims to contribute to the conversation on the Road to Paris and after Paris (UNFCCC COP21)by highlighting the historical objectives that could be agreed at the international conference and by discussing how implementation of those objectives could be efficiently achieved. Following the plenary session, participants will attend climate related tracks that will cover the following topics: Climate Finance, Green Energy, Climate Resilience, Landscapes, Green Buildings, Green Transport and ICT. The goal of the tracks is to provide hands-on training and actionable skills to the participants.

Day 2 (November 17) – Live Competition

The second day of the Summit will feature a live competition in which selected young professionals will present their final competition proposals in front of a jury.
