Call for Youth Leaders

Youth Voices in Emerging Climate Governance 

Learn from experts and engage with peers on the Governance of Solar Radiation Modification 

The C2G is an initiative working to catalyse the creation of effective governance for climate-altering approaches, in particular for carbon dioxide removal and solar radiation modification. Youth voices are currently largely absent from international discussions about how best to manage the rapidly increasing risks of overshooting 1.5/2C global warming and the need for stronger governance around solar radiation modification. To help address this, C2G has secured funding to deliver a one-year project to support building the capacity of a small group of youth leaders.   

Between 2022-23 C2G will support up to six youth leaders from around the world, aged between 19-24, with a stipend each worth US$20k plus other perks, to learn more about the need for strengthening governance for solar radiation modification in the context of the increasing likelihood of overshooting 1.5/2C warming and to catalyse the same learning amongst their peers. The project will provide participants with a unique opportunity to learn from a diverse range of leading international experts about the governance issues surrounding solar radiation modification and consequently contribute to emerging global discussions around this issue including through broadening the understanding of the issue among their peers. Interested young people should apply by 3 July 2022 following the application guidelines further below. 

Apply today for a unique opportunity to learn about and strengthen youth voices around the need for international governance of Solar Radiation Modification!
