About the Children’s
Climate Forum

The official Children’s Climate Forum is
organized by UNICEF and the City of Copenhagen in the week leading up to the
intergovernmental negotiations on climate change (COP 15). The Climate
Ambassadors have prepared for the forum by taking part in local-level
fact-gathering, workshops and/or negotiations around climate change. During the
forum, the delegates engaged in skill-building sessions and drafted a
declaration. They discussed how they engage at local and national levels when
they return home. A small group of the delegates will stay on to participate in
the first week of COP15 to engage with negotiators.
