Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/. The Office of the President of Mongolia, the Ministry of Environment and Tourism, together with the United Nations and UNA Mongolia are launching the ‘UN Youth Delegate - Environmental leadership’ program in August 2022 in order to increase youth participation and empower youth to engage in biodiversity and Nationally determined contributions as well as bring their voices to the national and global decision making levels.

Within the framework of the program, 30 young people between the ages of 18 and 30 will be selected and given the opportunity to attend workshops on various environmental issues for two months and implement an environmentally friendly project. The best two participants will get a chance to represent Mongolian youth at international UN conferences in Egypt and Canada.

After the UN Youth Delegates participate in the conferences, they will co-organize a national youth dialogue to share their learnings and determine the opportunities and next steps for youth participation for the environment.
