Thinking outside the (Climate) Box

For five years UNDP has been working with young people in Eastern Europe and Central Asia to educate and empower them to take climate action.


The UN Youth Climate Summit is a platform for young leaders who are driving climate action to showcase their solutions at the United Nations, and to meaningfully engage with decision-makers on the defining issue of our time.

This historic event took place on Saturday, September 21 at the United Nations Headquarters, as part of a weekend of events leading up to the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Action Summit on Monday, September 23.

For five years UNDP has been working with young people in Eastern Europe and Central Asia to educate and empower them to take climate action.

The climate is changing faster than we are. As UN Secretary-General António Guterres has warned, we are already off-track regarding the climate goals set in the 2015 Paris Agreement, and the world is warming so quickly that those goals are now not ambitious enough.

Despite these challenges, there are positive changes that give us hope. Clean energy is becoming more affordable, and innovation is the new norm. New, younger leaders have come on stage willing to trigger bold climate action. All over the world our new climate heroes—schoolchildren—are marching to demand action.
