COP 23 will take place in Bonn, Germany from November 6th - 17th, 2017. You must be available to attend the entire conference, in addition to pre-conference planning in Bonn from November 4th - 5th and post-conference debrief November 18th - 19th.
The delegation will be made up of 5-8 youth from across Canada. All applicants must be between the ages of 18-30 by December 1st, 2017.
Online applications are due Sunday, May 28th before midnight PST. Shortlisted applicants will be contacted in for an interview. Organizing will begin near the middle of July so please note that some time availability will be required over the summer.
Any questions regarding the CYD or the application process can be directed to Liam O'Doherty at firstname.lastname@example.org and Kiki Wood at email@example.com.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The CYCC is not able to provide funding to cover the costs of participation. All selected participants will receive support to raise funds to cover the costs of their participation, as well as having the option to fundraise as a team, but full funding will not be provided. Costs for delegates usually range between $3,000 - 4,000 per delegate, including flights, accommodations, meals, retreat travel etc. Ideally cost would be no barrier to participation in the CYD, but we are at present unable to guarantee funding to anyone. We will, however, make every effort to find funding for participants and to provide support in fundraising. We will work especially hard to provide support for those facing significant economic barriers to participation.
