Local Conference of Youth (LCOY) is an event initiated by YOUNGO since 2014, with an aim to empower youth through networking and knowledge sharing. LCOY desires to connect the annual climate negotiations to local climate action and turn words into action, especially youth actions. This year's LCOYHK is organized by CarbonCare InnoLab, co-organized by Hong Kong Youth for Climate Action, NESS and V'air Hong Kong.
The theme of LCOY 2023 is "Youth for a Livable City". It hopes to build capacity among young people to better understand the relationship between climate change and our city, and to co-create a climate resilient place of living. There will be series of interactive workshops, seminars, climate related games, and discussion sections in LCOY. It hopes to strengthen networks among young people as well as inspire the determination to continuous climate actions, in preparation for COP 28 at the end of the year.
