On November 1st, 2016, we want to discuss this issue with you. Distinguished experts will be presenting their point of view and will be calling on us, the young generation, to jointly shape a carbon neutral world.
The Evangelische Akademie Tutzing and Plant-for-the-Planet invite young people from Bavaria to take part in the discussion. Prof. Franz-Josef Radermacher will moderate the event and will be discussing the presentations of the international experts with us.
Another emphasis of Youth Summit 2016 will be the establishment of an executive structure for our initiative, i.e. determining rights and responsibilities of the global board as the executive power.
After the Youth Summit we will be offering training in our Empowerment Center in Possenhofen (near Munich). The training consists of several units:
Why the Youth Summit is organized?
Last year’s Paris Agreement was a milestone towards saving our future. Now all of us – multinational companies and citizens alike - have to bring this agreement to life and reduce greenhouse gas emissions permanently, so that the rise of the global mean temperature stays below 1.5 degrees Celsius. To achieve this we need a Global Energy Revolution. The energy of the future is clean and inexpensive. Only then will it be possible to preserve the living environment of billions of people, only then will people be able to escape poverty and only then will future generations have a future. That is why at last year's Youth Summit we agreed to focus on a Global Energy Revolution at the 2016 summit.
The 22nd session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 22) to the UNFCCC is expected to take place in from November 7th-18th 2016. Morocco will host this COP. Participants of the Youth Summit and Empowerment Center are invited to register their interest in being part of the Plant-for-the-Planet delegation by emailing Helge Bork.
