Everyone agrees that sustainable development is an important issue.
And yet, climate protection and the reduction of inequalities are problems that have yet to be solved. Meanwhile, scientists are predicting dire consequences resulting from rising global temperatures. During COP21, which will take place at the end of November, world leaders from across the globe will meet to give legal force to their commitments to making our world more sustainable.
The 11th Conference of Youth aims to include young people in major COP discussions.
Since sustainable progress will not happen without involvement from the world's young people, the Make It Real challenge was created to develop concrete proposals from the discussions that take place during COY11. For the first time, young stakeholders like yourself who are involved in civil society will be able to get help from experts, incubators and private companies while attending a UN-sponsored event whose goal is to bring about real change.
