LWF Delegation to UN COP 27

UN Conference of Parties (COP) 27

Since 2011, Youth have led LWF Conference of Parties (COP) delegations and they are leading climate justice projects all over the world, focusing on the importance of taking care of the creation, intergenerational justice, how to participate in climate national processes like National Determined Contributions - NDC, promoting reforestation in their own communities and gathering ideas for climate justice engagement on carbon neutrality. 


LWF COP Delegates commit to:


(1) participate in learning sessions about ecotheology and climate justice before COP

(2) gather for daily online peer conversations about these topics during COP

(3) attend side events / negotiations during COP  

(4) implement an LWF Youth Leadership project in their LWF Member Church after COP to share what they have learned
