Youth Climate Conclave 4th Edition

In order to develop a network of young talent that would pioneer transformative solutions to counter the impacts of climate change, the 4th edition of ‘Youth Climate Conclave’ (YCC) is being organized. YCC is being held under the India-EU Clean Energy and Climate Partnership (CECP) project, financed by the Partnership Instrument of the European Union and managed by the Delegation of the European Union to India. PricewaterhouseCoopers Private Limited (PwC India) is the implementing partner for this project, together with NIRAS A/S, EUROCHAMBRES and the Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW). The YCC activity is being implemented by TERI. This conclave is envisaged as a competitive and an educative mode of action, wherein youth from across the country will come together to join hands and address the issues of climate change.

The conclave involves a series of activities in the run up to the event; which includes a photography competition for youth, along with a 2- day knowledge enrichment sessions linked to TERI's World Sustainable Development Summit 2023 and an exclusive Eduexcursion to give youth evidence- based learning to counter Climate Change.
