The whole world will meet in Bonn, and you can be part of it!
In 2017, Plant-for-the-Planet takes part in COY13 and COP23 in Bonn, Germany. What we offer to you isn’t a Youth Summit as you know it. We want you to get active with your own ideas of how to attract the media’s and delegates’ attention. We help you and provide accommodation at a favorable price in Bonn and support in making your ideas become reality.
Connect with young people from all over the world to save your future!
Moreover, on Nov 3rd, we invite you to join our unique event about a material that stores carbon, avoids the use of other climate-damaging materials, creates millions of jobs and saves our future: Wood!
See you in Bonn!
In Marrakesh, on Nov 4th, 2016, the UN Climate Agreement was set into force. Our Plant-for-the-Planet delegation contributed to this success by spreading the Change Chocolate among the negotiators. The Change Chocolate is a fair-trade product that plants trees against the climate crisis. For COP23, we produce a special edition of the Change Chocolate which will explain the importance of global action against climate crisis. The chocolate wrapper contains a letter to the Governments all over the world asking the powerful people to take action and save our future. Connect with young people from all over the world and join our delegation.
We reinvent the wood industry! At our conference "Wood Is Ingenious", scientists present all aspects of this ingenious material: It stores carbon. It avoids concrete which causes carbon emissions three times as high as emissions by airplanes. It is the only material grown out of the power of the sun. Imagine we built skyscrapers out of wood, we provided a hundred millions of jobs in the global south, we stored one fourth of the annual global carbon emissions by planting trees and using wood.
Journalists from all over the world will be there. Delegates will negotiate climate action plans. And you will catch their attention by your creative action to let all of them know: Stop talking. Start planting. We invite you to make your own idea become reality during COY13/COP23.

During our Youth Summit 2015, we developed a proposal for solutions to ensure our survival and sent a message to the world’s leaders, who met a few days later at the G7-Summit and Bilderberg Conference, both of which are just 40 miles away from our Youth Summit 2015 location.
