You can’t make it to the UN climate conference this year but…

what if you could bring the negotiations to your own city?

COP in MyCity is a youth-led project which ambitions to bridge the gap between climate negotiations (a.k.a. the COPs) and the mainstream public. How? By fostering education and action about climate change locally and by creating an international community of changemakers.
