COP28 Side Events: Children, Cities and Climate Action Lab Workshops
The Children, Cities and Climate Action Lab is hosting three live workshops at COP28, which invite young people and policy-makers to co-design an agenda for improving cities to be healthier and more sustainable.
Creative approaches will be used to build a concept of both the lived experience of young people in cities affected by climate change and an ideal urban future that prioritizes health and sustainability. The agenda will feature aspirational and actional ideas for bridging the gap between these two concepts.
The three Children, Cities and Climate (CCC) Action Lab workshops are detailed below.
