Second National Youth Assembly on Climate

Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications and Minister for Transport, Eamon Ryan, and Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth, Roderic O’Gorman, have welcomed the convening of the National Youth Assembly on Climate 2023 this weekend in Dublin.

The National Youth Assembly on Climate is a forum where young people aged between 12-24 from across the country are provided with the opportunity to make recommendations directly to Government to inform the Climate Action Plan.

Approximately 60 young delegates from Comhairle na nÓg (Local Youth Councils), various youth organisations and climate organisations contributed.

In advance of the Assembly, each delegate was given the opportunity to vote on key themes arising from the previous Youth Assembly on Climate (March 2022). The three themes that received the most votes are the focus of this Assembly. These are:

  • sustainable transport
  • circular economy
  • communication, engagement and climate literacy
