Malaysia is a party in United Nation Framework Convention of Climate Change (UNFCCC) to combat climate change. However, the voices from the youth are often unheard and not taken into account in national policy making. Reference to Article 6 in UNFCCC, (a(iii) public participation in addressing climate change and its effects and developing adequate responses), we foresee the importance of getting the involvement of public especially youth in climate change negotiation process for a better future.

A series of training is designed to effectively provide the exposure to the UNFCCC processes with the active stakeholders. The list includes, Malaysian Negotiator, Guardian’s top young campaigners to watch in the lead up to COP21, award winning journalists, producers, editors and many more.
