Warsaw Climate Conference (COP19/CMP9) Side Events: Intergenerational Inquiry, presented by YOUNGO and the UNFCCC Secretariat

14 November 2013 | Warsaw, Poland

(Duration: 7:05)

Ahmad Alhendawi, UN Secretary-General's Envoy on Youth, encouraged youth to translate their energy into action, to challenge their government’s climate positions back in their home countries.

Speaking as a woman and a mother, Christiana Figueres, UNFCCC Executive Secretary, addressed delegates, pointing to her children as her primary reason to dedicate her life’s work to climate change. She acknowledged that the climate negotiations can be a frustrating process, but urged youth to see addressing climate change as a marathon, not a sprint.
