Venue tbc
Piazzale Carlo Magno 1

Four hundred young delegates from all over the world, dozens of Environment Ministers, Heads of State, UN representatives, over 500 national and international events supported by the private sector and civil society: these are the numbers of the Italian week dedicated to the fight against climate change which includes two high-profile international meetings and a full calendar of initiatives.

From 28 September to 2 October the city of Milan will host the Pre-COP26, the United Nations high-level preparatory meeting of the Conference of the Parties on Climate (COP26) to be held in November in Glasgow.
From 28 to 30 September, the Youth4Climate event will open the agenda: two young delegates from each of the 197 member countries of the UNFCCC (the United Nations Convention on Climate Change) will be engaged in working groups and debates. Greta Thunberg will also be there with them, along with young international activist Vanessa Nakate.

After three days of workshops and debates, on 30 September 2021 the activists of Youth4Climate will meet the ministers who have arrived in Milano for the PreCOP26 and present their proposals to international diplomacy to avert the ecological catastrophe.

The PreCOP to be held in Milano at the MiCo Convention Center from 30 September to 2 October 2021 is the last official meeting before the world climate summit in Glasgow. The plenary session to draft the “COP26 package” will take place on 2 October, when the final considerations will be adopted.
