General information

LCOY stands for Local Conference of Youth. This is the non-profit climate conference funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action. Our aim is to bring together young people from all social backgrounds, to provide them with knowledge about the climate and to facilitate exchange with high-profile guests from science, politics and business. LCOYs are worldwide offshoots of the Conference of Youth (COY), which always takes place before the UN climate negotiations.

For everyone between the ages of 14 and 30.

No, you do not need any prior knowledge.

We are always happy to receive support! We especially need helping hands on site. We will open a form for volunteers in May. If you have any questions or would like to join us beforehand, please contact us through our contact form.

We are a colorful group of young people from all over Germany and beyond. Our 70-strong team has a wide range of experience and skills to organise and run the conferences. Many of us have already worked energetically on the planning of the LCOYs 2019 to 2022 in the last few years or have participated as participants. We are legally supported by the BUNDjugend.

Climate protection can only succeed if everyone is heard and everyone contributes. That is why we offer young people from all parts of society a platform for networking and enable them to exchange ideas with each other as well as with scientists, companies, politicians, NGOs and other experts. Together we discuss the effects, possibilities, opportunities and risks of climate change and look for solutions for all. In addition, knowledge will be imparted in the program contributions so that everyone - whether climate professional or newcomer - can stand up for ambitious and socially just climate protection.
