Applications Open for the Race To Zero Youth Fellowship

Youth engagement is important to WWN, and wetlands are essential to tackle climate change. As such we are happy to share the following opportunity for people aged under 30:

The High Level Champions Team for UNFCCC COP26 has launched a fellowship scheme for young professionals. It will be a platform for young people to work within the Champions team and drive climate action in the non-state actor community in the lead-up to COP26.

Fellows will join the High Level Climate Champions Team for a ten month fellowship focused within the following sectors – food and agriculture, energy and climate resilience. 

The fellowship will include modules on leadership development, engagement with business, NGO and/or policy leaders, mobilisation and outreach in broader networks, and a capstone project. The fellows will work closely with the sector leads during this fellowship and will be required to commit up to 10 hours per week. Fellows will receive a small stipend.  

Application deadline: 5pm GMT on Sunday 13 December.
