What is the Asia-Pacific Youth Advisory Group? UN Human Rights, UNFCCC, and UNDP are establishing an Asia-Pacific Youth Advisory Group on Environmental and Climate Justice, which will be anchored in YECAP and will have presence, through UNDP’s 24 Country Offices, in 36 countries in Asia and the Pacific.

What to expect? Membership in the Asia-Pacific Youth Advisory Group on Environmental and Climate Justice will be composed of 20 young people between the ages of 18-35 for a duration of 12 months, with possible renewal. The Youth Advisory Group will strive to have members from grassroots, community-based groups, and indigenous peoples’ organizations operating in differing spaces and constituencies in climate justice.

Who can apply? Experienced and dedicated youth working on environmental and climate justice in the Asia-Pacific region for at least two years (with fluency in English) are invited to apply for a chance to work towards strengthening the environmental rule of law. 

Why join us? The selected Members will get to share their voices and concerns on environmental and climate justice, connect and learn from environmental and climate activists from across the world, identify challenges and opportunities for climate and environmental justice at various levels, support visibility and outreach on programmes and activities, and participate in activities led by the involved UN agencies on environmental and climate justice.
