Young Cypriots set to meet to combat climate change

- By TOM CLEAVER

THE first ever “Local Conference of Youth on Climate Change” (LCOY) in Cyprus will take place on October 1-2 in the UN buffer zone.

According to a press release, the event aims, among other things, to “enhance the knowledge of

Cypriot youth on climate and environmen­tal issues” and “create more spaces for the youth to work together to advance their climate and environmen­tal advocacy work”.

The conference will also serve as a prelude to the global Conference of the Youth, which will take place in November and bring together young people from across the world in order to discuss pressing climate and environmen­tal issues.

The event is being supported by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s youth branch, which is known as Youngo, as well as the British High Commission in Cyprus and the British Council.
