SUSTAINUS IS A YOUTH-LED NATIONAL ORGANIZATION

THIS WILL BE SUSTAINUS' FIRST-EVER INDIGENOUS-LED YOUTH DELEGATION TO COP

What is COP?
The annual UN climate negotiations, COP, is where most countries of the world come together to discuss global responses to climate change. COP is where the Paris Agreement was developed and agreed upon along with many other protocols for determining future climate action. SustainUS has been showing up for many years to advocate for the voice of the youth and make bold statements both inside and outside of halls of negotiation.

HERE IS OUR COP 25 VISION
