YCL believes that the best way to understand a complex problem like climate change is to experience its real implications in different contexts. Therefore, in 2019 we invite you to learn more about cities and climate change through a 3-week journey to Germany and India. Are you ready? Limited spots - selection will happen in an ongoing basis.

2018

From 20 July to 31 August 2018, YCL organized its first international immersion. First, we went to Paris, France, a strategic city due to its importance for climate governance. Participants had an induction week, in which they got to know each other, learn more about the program, and had lectures with key actors in climate international policy. From Paris, we went to Kenya, where we visited key organizations, such as the headquarters of the UN Environment. Participants also developed a group project to Endeleza, a local NGO located in Meru.
