Youth Climate Report

Youth are telling global leaders what future they want to see. Through the Youth Climate Report, those leaders are listening.

Youth Climate Report offers an influential platform for global youth to report on the science and policy of climate change, and provides opportunities to develop the filmmaking, photography and writing skills needed to make the most of the platform. Every year, the Youth Climate Report crowdsources the best short films on climate research made by youth around the world. Since 2015, those films have been presented at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change conferences (COP).


Watch the films which have influenced COP decisions.
