COP20 (10/12/14) – Members of YOUNGO talk about their reasons for attending COP and highlight the issue of intergenerational equity. Intergenerational equity is the concept that what we decide at the UNFCCC must be equitable for the young people and future generations who will have to live with the consequences of any agreement negotiated by the parties. They also discuss if young people are listened to at the talks and the task of connecting their work at COP with capacity building and education in their home countries. They also outline some of the ways in which young people have made a big impact on the progress of the climate negotiations. They then go on to consider their hopes for the Paris agreement, explaining how negotiators can make the agreement more effective, and emphasising the progress being achieved outside the UNFCCC process.
