The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC): Inviting applications for ‘Global youth video competition’.

Funding brief: Are you 18-30 and taking part in activities to fight climate change? Send a 3 minute video for a chance to be a youth reporter at the UN Climate Change Conference in Poland in December.

The Global Youth Video Competition on Climate Change is co-organized by the UNFCCC secretariat and the UNDP-GEF Small Grants Programme.

Category-1: Responsible production & consumption: How we make and use the products and goods they use in everyday life plays an important role in tackling climate change.

Taking raw materials from the ground, manufacturing products and then throwing away our used products and waste materials can all add to greenhouse gas emissions. But there are low-carbon ways to design, produce, supply and recycle products.

They can live more climate friendly lifestyles if we manage our natural resources sustainably, and be more energy and resource efficient during the entire life-cycle of the goods we consume.

Submit videos that showcase your activities that contribute to responsible production and consumption

Examples of submissions:
● Carrying out climate friendly solutions/ideas on how to promote sustainable production or consumption
● Campaigns to promote behavioral change
● Initiatives to reduce emissions during the lifecycle of goods, in areas such as:
  Unnecessary consumption
  Sustainable fashion
  Sharing economy
  Reusing goods and materials
  Transporting goods
  Locally focused economy
  Reducing waste

Green and climate friendly jobs: New job opportunities are opening up in a range of environmentally-friendly sectors such as renewable energy, sustainable design, recycling, energy efficiency, electric vehicles or sustainable agriculture.

Green jobs can improve energy efficiency, limit greenhouse gas emissions, and help people adapt to the effects of climate change.

New business ideas, green industrialization, and education can all add to the creation of safe and meaningful work in a low-carbon economy.
