Young people all around the world are protesting over climate change inaction. They are demanding access to decision-making and challenging governments’ abilities to tackle the climate crisis. At HLPF 2019, Iceland, one of the oldest democracies in the world, will bring the question of youth inclusion, climate action and democracy to the forefront of global discussions. Join the Icelandic Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir and a distinguished Youth Panel in an interactive debate on how Generation 2030 can push for accelerating global climate action, SDG13, and achieve climate justice and peaceful societies, SDG16.
