Youth voices, particularly those from the Global South, should be a key part of current and future discourse on climate change. This plenary session will bring together young champions from different Global South regions, who are poised and passionate about the ongoing climate crisis and who have served as change agents in their homes, schools and communities. They will highlight the opportunities and challenges as well as the impact of their work in their individual spaces.
