  • The Center for Mediterranean Integration (CMI) is organizing a youth panel discussion under the theme of “Youth, Climate Change and Solutions” highlighting the role and dedication of youth engagement to combating climate change. 


    This animated youth panel is organized in the context of the MEDCOP21 with support from the European Investment Bank (EIB) and in partnership with France Media Monde (FMM).


    Youth from several Mediterranean countries from both the Northern and Southern shores have been invited to present their work and activities tackling climate change issues. They will engage in a debate to discuss solutions for a changing climate and present their views on how to induce the necessary changes for the widespread transformation towards climate resilient societies and low carbon economies. 


    The animation will give young people a voice to express their views on climate change issues. In particular, the animation will address the following questions: 

    • What is the role of young people in fighting climate change and preparing the society for climate change?
    • What initiatives of young people exist on climate change mitigation and adaptation?
    • Does climate change also give opportunities for the future?
    • According to the young people, what should policy focus on when fighting climate change?
    • Are young people’s messages heard and taken seriously by policy-makers and are they reflected in policy-responses?
    • What messages would young people like to communicate to the COP21 in Paris at the end of the year?
    • What is the role of regional integration and to what extent can a regional Mediterranean approach help to tackle climate change more efficiently?
