Through our affiliation with the UNFCCC, YES-DC is expected to represent the interests of her members during the Conferences of the Parties. Therefore, YES-DC sends a representation of her members to COP every year.

In 2019, the 25th edition of COP will take place in the city of Santiago, capital of Chile, on 2-13rd December 2019. The YES-DC delegation of 2019 exists of eight members, which will represent the organisation during the two weeks of the summit. One of the issues the delegation will focus on this year, is the role of youth participation in decision-making around climate policies: YES-DC will host a workshop on how this youth participation is done in the Netherlands.
