Climate Champions Youth Fellowship 2024

Climate Champions

Applications NOW OPEN for the Climate Champions Youth Fellowship 2024!

Young people and future generations are environmental stewards of the future. Many are also leaders and subject matter experts today. The Climate Champions Team, in support of the UN Climate Change High-Level Champions, are committed to strengthening youth agency in climate action. Elevating and empowering youth voices will help drive systemic change and the Climate Champions will continue to position this vital stakeholder group at the heart of our work.

The Climate Champions Team is now looking for its fourth cohort of ambitious and stubbornly optimistic Youth Fellows. The programme creates a pathway for young professionals to work within the team supporting the UN Climate Change High-Level Champions for COP28 and COP29 – H.E Razan Al Mubarak and Ms. Nigar Arpadarai – to drive real world momentum into the UN Climate Change negotiations.

As part of the Youth Fellowship programme, you will help mobilise climate action amongst non-State actors to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement, in close collaboration with the UNFCCC, the Marrakech Partnership and the COP Presidencies.


This is a paid fellowship program!


Time commitment: The selected fellows will work closely with the respective sector leads during this fellowship and will be required to commit 16 hours per week.
