REGIONAL YOUTH PARLIAMENT ON CLIMATE ACTION

Regional Youth Parliament on Climate Action

What is the Regional Youth Parliament on Climate Action (RYPCA)? The Regional Youth Parliament on Climate Action (RYPCA) will empower young people in the Asia-Pacific region to meaningfully engage in climate governance. It will provide a platform for young leaders to influence national and regional climate policies by participating, lobbing, and advising in political processes. The main focus is on enhancing youth roles in formulating and implementing climate strategies and fosters peer-to-peer exchanges and capacity building.

What to expect? 15 youths between the ages of 18-35, for an initial duration of 12-18 months, will influence decision-making processes and address their underrepresentation in climate policies such as NAPs and NDCs. They will participate in peer-to-peer learning, networking, and collaboration opportunities, and will be equipped with the skills needed for climate negotiations.

Who can apply? Members of diverse governmental and legislative bodies with a proven track record in climate legislation are invited to apply. The RYPCA seeks gender and geographical balance, with applicants from North East Asia, South East Asia, South Asia, and the Pacific. Applications from marginalized groups, including women, Indigenous youth, persons with disabilities, and vulnerable communities, are encouraged.

Why join us? Members of the RYPCA will develop and implement country-specific strategies for youth engagement in climate decision-making, collaborate with senior officials to strengthen climate policies, support and expand the impact of climate activities and events, and compile and share best practices in climate governance across the Asia-Pacific region.
