Press Release of Swiss Youth for Climate (French and German Version below)
COP27: In the name of climate justice.
Zurich, 25.10.2022. Swiss Youth for Climate will travel to the COP27 climate conference in Sharm el Sheikh with a delegation of 8 young people. As representatives of Swiss civil society, they will urge international decision-makers to act and call for the rapid implementation of ambitious climate protection measures.
This year’s UN climate conference (COP26) hosted in Glasgow is the most important one since COP21 in Paris in 2015. The most recent IPCC publication (AR6 Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis) is dire. Scientists do not contest climate change and the need to act fast: in order to limit global warming to 1.5ºC—the increasingly aspirational goal of the Paris Agreement—emissions must halve worldwide by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050.
