Details

The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) calls on its member churches to nominate persons younger than 30 as delegates to the upcoming 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, United Kingdom. This reaffirms the LWFs engagement to address the climate crisis, particularly through youth leaders. Nominations close on 20 August. 

COP26 takes place from 31 October to 12 November 2021. The conference will likely be in a hybrid format that will include online participation and in-person participation. The nominated youth will play a key role in shaping the LWF’s engagement with COP26 – ranging from national-level advocacy to global mobilization. 

This event aims to empower young Lutherans to act meaningfully for climate justice as people of faith and strengthen youth leadership across the LWF. 

Not all nominated candidates will participate directly in the COP26 as members of the LWF delegation. However, all youth nominated will have the opportunity to attend workshops before COP26.
