Youth Climate Ambassadors at COP26

Join the Youth Climate Ambassadors for Wales throughout the COP26 climate conference.

The 26th United Nations ‘Conference of the Parties’ – better known as COP – takes place from 31st October to 12th November in Glasgow. With world leaders meeting to review progress on the 2016 Paris Agreement, this conference may be our last chance to take decisive action on the climate crisis.

The Youth Climate Ambassadors (YCA) are a group of young people from across Wales who are passionate climate activists fighting for climate justice. They will be present throughout the whole of COP26 to amplify the voices of young people in Wales and campaign to national and global leaders.

These pages will be updated daily throughout COP26 with blogs, podcasts, and videos. You can also follow the YCA’S activities on Twitter and Instagram.


Learn all about what is happening at COP26 and ask questions to Welsh Climate Leaders, including the Future Generations Commissioner, The Minister for Climate Change, the YCA and many more.
