Vadim Kuznetsov, Manager of Sustainable Development Goals Platform (SDGP), will take part in the special event “Youth4Climate: Driving Ambition” which is scheduled for September 2021 in Milan, Italy.

The high profile youth conference will bring together 400 young specialists in energy, climate, and sustainability fields from around the world to help shape the climate agenda for this year’s key international forum: the 26th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP26) to the UNFCCC in Glasgow, UK.

On behalf of the BRICS Youth Energy Agency, Vadim Kuznetsov will deliver the vision of BRICS Youth for a balanced and just energy transition. This will also be an occasion to showcase the ambitious BRICS Youth Energy Compact that is being devised in the run-up to the UN High-Level Dialogue on Energy. As an outcome, youth representatives will elaborate policy proposals and present them to the Ministers attending Pre-COP26.

The special event “Youth4Climate: DrivingAmbition” is organized from 28 to 30 September 2021 by the UN Secretary General’s Envoy on Youth, the Ministry for Ecological Transition of Italy and Connect4Climate global partnership under the World Bank Group.
