Youth Engagement on Climate Change: Events Form

The U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP), NOAA, the Association of Science Technology Center (ASTC), U.S. Department of Energy and The Wild Center are working on developing a website to support a COP21 Side Event titled "Our Time to Lead: Youth Engagement on Climate Change." The side event will showcase models related to climate and/or energy literacy, education, and engagement in the United States and internationally, particularly highlighting the youth panelists’ actions and initiatives.

The panel will highlight other youth efforts by fielding questions from Association of Science Technology Center sites in Argentina, Finland, India, South Africa, and Jordan, as well as science centers, schools, and other institutions in the United States.

Short videos highlighting youth climate engagement and leadership will be highlighted. Social media, such as Twitter and Facebook, will be used to interact with participants beyond the COP 21 site. We will also be using organization websites to leverage youth participation and will amplify with press releases. We will involve youth at all stages of the communication plan.

We will document all aspects of our participation and the impacts and outcomes of "Our Time to Lead: Youth Engagement on Climate Change", and provide/archive this content to the U.S. Center, the Association for Science Technology Centers (ASTC), NOAA’s climate.gov and other collaborating partners websites (USG & NGOs - The Wild Center, U.S. Department of Energy) to maximize the impact of our initiatives and involvement throughout COP 21.

The purpose of this form is to allow organizations to submit items to be considered for Events for Youth Engagement on Climate Change. Organizations who have multiple Youth Engagement on Climate Change events, can submit more than event to be considered for inclusion in the Climate.gov section on Youth Engagement on Climate Change.
