Future Voices - COP28 Youth Empowerment Hub

COP28 Climate Hub, Youth Hub

youth4planet

Are you under 30? Are you passionate about making a difference for the planet and the future for us all?

Our digital COP28 Youth Empowerment Hub brings together young people from all over the world to make their voices heard in our global broadcasts during the UN Climate Conference COP28 in Dubai.

We want to break down barriers to an arena that is hard to access, and create a “ticket” for COP28 for everyone under 30 years old to connect with people in power, from global leaders to decision-makers.


The hub will during each day of COP28  feature speakers and organizations exclusively curated for the youth audience during We Don’t Have Time’s COP28 broadcasts.

Register below on this page for more information.
