And we are demanding it now!
The UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) taking place in Egypt in November is being coined ‘the African COP’. Not because it is on African soil, but because it has to prioritise African needs and the African agenda. WE!ARE hosting the first-ever COP Youth Pavilion, which will facilitate a high-level exhibition and pledge between Africa’s youth and the attending policymakers. The Africa We Want to See publication containing the climate justice demands of 2 000 WE!ARE African climate activists will be handed over to policymakers. In addition, a showreel of the workshops, showcases and Sail-to-Sharm initiative will also be shown to delegates.
