The Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) in partnership with Children and Youth Major Group to UNEP (CYMG), Fast Action on Climate to Ensure Intergenerational Justice (FACE), NDC Partnership, OpenAQ, and Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) recognize the crucial role that young people play in addressing climate change and air pollution. As part of CCAC’s commitment to engaging and empowering youth, CCAC launched a Youth Engagement Strategy last year to empower young people to reduce super pollutants and improve air quality globally.

SLCPs, including methane, black carbon, and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), are powerful climate forcers that have a significant impact on global warming and air quality. Addressing these pollutants can bring immediate benefits to both the climate and public health. Youth, as future leaders and innovators are uniquely positioned to drive forward solutions that address these urgent issues.

This webinar, titled "Youth Action for Climate and Clean Air Now," is designed to engage, educate, and empower young people to act on SLCPs and air quality. By bringing together youth leaders, experts, and advocates, we aim to foster a collaborative environment where innovative ideas and practical solutions can be shared.

Target Audience

This webinar is designed for a global audience of young people aged 15-35 who are interested in climate change, air pollution, and environmental issues. This may include:

• Youth activists and leaders
