COY 14 in Katowice

What is COY?

The United Nations holds an annual conference to discuss and assess yearly progress in dealing with climate change called the Conference of Parties (COP).

The Conference of Youth (COY) is an official event of YOUNGO.

COY continues to involve children and youths from different sectors of society and areas of the world, with number growing steadily over the years. It is organised by the youth for the youth. Moreover, in 2015, the idea of COY started spreading around the world. Young people recognized the value of COYs, and got inspired to organise local COYs
