An all-day virtual summit to boost your career in climate change
The Day of the Climate Professional (DCP) is an annual date to celebrate and catalyse the professionals accelerating solutions to the climate crisis.
We will convene accessible events and activities to share knowledge about the climate crisis while providing information on how to access opportunities in this field. The ultimate goal of this Day is to demonstrate and celebrate that building a carbon neutral society will create a vast number of new jobs and careers connected with the post-pandemic recovery, global green new deals, Race to Zero, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Created in 2018, Youth Climate Leaders (YCL) trains and connects young people with networks and opportunities to build a career in the area of climate and sustainability. We aim to empower 1 million young people to lead climate projects as part of a global network. We believe that it is possible to catalyze the professional futures of young people through education and bridging the gaps with organizations that already operate in the sector. After being trained by a YCL program, participants become a part of the YCL Network, a global community of practice with members from different areas of expertise. By June 2020, YCL is comprised of over 200 YCL Fellows from 20 countries.
