EnCaf Youth joins efforts to influence COP26
Members of EnCaf Youth met at the end of February 2021 to discuss how they could influence the world summit C0P26 that is taking place in November this year.
Theo Sergiou from the Youth Parliament and a local Enfield resident explained that on March 3rd representative of young people will be meeting to decide on what their priorities are for the Summit - as young people had already indicated that their number one priority was climate change.
Theo asked Enfield Youth to be involved and come up with their recommendations. So there was an initial discussion and the focus was on incineration and its emissions that contribute to climate change and recycling. They will now be refining these into definite proposals.
On March 3rd the final list of all proposals will be determined and a petition they hope will reach over 25,000 young people will be launched for submission to Government. You can see Theo's presentation below.
