The climate crisis is affecting children and their rights first and worst, and will continue to affect future generations of children. Across the world, a growing global movement of children are demanding climate action, providing leadership on how the climate crisis should be addressed. Despite this, climate events and summits at all levels are rarely inclusive of children.

The COVID-19 pandemic has restricted the ability of children to share their concerns and demands publicly, and the continuing crisis – coupled with travel restrictions and vaccine inequity – will prevent children from participating in COP 26.

A COP Fit For Children: How to support children’s participation sets out how the organisers of COP and states involved in COP can make the climate summit inclusive for all children in the processes leading up to COP, COP itself, and in the follow up process.
