The Malaysian Youth Delegation (MYD) is a group of passionate Malaysian individuals who represent the local youth climate movement at international climate conferences, such as the annual Conference of the Parties (COP) part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Dedicated to raising awareness of climate policies amongst Malaysians, the youth are mentored and trained to translate technical policies into more relevant and relatable information for the public. MYD holds speaking engagements with various climate organizations to better understand the current landscape of local and international climate policies. In doing so, MYD endeavors to hold Malaysian leaders accountable for the promises made at international climate summits.
