About the LCOY

What is an LCOY?

A Local Conference of Youth (LCOY) is an event under the umbrella of YOUNGO, the official youth (15-35) constituency of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Its aims are to be a space to boost youth climate action locally and create an input into the international conferences. It represents a national version of the international Conference of Youth (COY), which takes place immediately before the Conference of Parties (COP), the annual UN-Climate Conference.
