Youth Climate Action Summit

UN Youth Climate Summit (recording) | Saturday 21 September 2019 | New York

Young people from 93 YMCAs in nearly 50 countries took #ClimateAction Saturday 21 September as they gathered to watch the UN’s first Youth Climate Summit in New York. Before and after their respective watch parties they ventured into their communities to clean up litter from the streets and beaches, took part in group learning sessions about how they could help stop climate change, and created artwork declaring their commitment for climate action.

During the lunch break in New York, YMCAs from Wales, Zimbabwe, the Philippines and the USA entered into a Facebook Live discussion with our Secretary General Carlos Madjri Sanvee, who was attending the Summit in New York.
Watch the recording.

Our Secretary General also took part in a live interview as part of the Science Matters SDG Live Media Zone where he spoke about YMCA’s commitment to achieving the SDGs and the importance of young people being solution providers in their communities.
