YOUNGO Global South Scholarship To Attend COP 23 and COY 13 in Bonn, Germany | Diplomacy Opportunities


In light of the barriers facing the participation of youth from the Global South, the GSS 2017 will provide the necessary financial resources to enable more young people to attend COY13 and COP23 who otherwise would not have the opportunity. GSS 2017 will also provide a robust capacity building program to empower Global South participation which is effective, rather than tokenistic.

The GSS 2017 shall cover all costs of travel (to and fro international tickets), accommodation, visa, travel insurance fee, food, local transport and other costs for the selected applicants to participate both in the UNFCCC’s 23rd Conference of Parties (COP 23) and the 13th Conference of Youth (COY 13) in Bonn, Germany in November 2017, also providing the selected applicants with online Capacity Building Training sessions about the process, prior to their travel to Bonn.
