Due Date:

The Government of Vanuatu and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH are working in partnership to provide a space for the voices of young Pacific Islanders. Selected youth representatives will be empowered to tell their personal climate change experiences with a focus on solutions and express their concerns on global stage during an official side-event in the Fiji Pavilion in the Bonn Zone at the 23rd session of the Conference of the Parties (COP23) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Bonn, Germany (6-17 November 2017).
The future of the Pacific Island region is at stake as the effects of climate change pose a unique threat to the livelihoods of Pacific Islanders and their inheritance. The adverse consequences of the changing climate are already a reality for Pacific youths today and will be for generations to come. Pacific youths are creative in finding solutions based on their traditional and contemporary knowledge. This side event will showcase their strengths and needs.

In the course of the Pacific Youth Voices in Unison project, one young Pacific Islander from the Republic of Vanuatu is sought to represent his/her country on the world stage pre-, during and post-COP 23. The selected youth representative will be part of a team of five other youth representatives from the Pacific Island region. Youth representatives will attend several public events during their stay in Bonn, Germany. In their intended role as young Pacific climate ambassadors, youth representatives will have to interact with several stakeholders, including journalists and media.
