Our Ambassadors of the Week are everyone who took part in Call On COP. We thank the 196 Ambassadors who represented their countries and took part in the One Young World campaign to call on world leaders to take urgent action on climate. A full list of their videos can be found here.
20 years of UN climate negotiations have failed to produce a binding and universal agreement for climate change action. The Paris Climate Conference - COP21 - is the last chance for world leaders to change course and ensure a sustainable future for all.
At the One Young World Summit 2015, young leaders from 196 countries recorded video messages calling on their country's leaders to deliver the agreement we need in Paris.
One Young World Counsellors including former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, Unilever CEO Paul Polman and philanthropist Sir Bob Geldof also called on world leaders to commit to urgent climate action.
Ambassador Donald Bambara is attending COP21 and spoke earlier today in a press conference representing youth working groups. This is what he would like to see resulting from COP21: "In order to reach an agreement, all actions should be taken collectively. All parties should mitigate collectively and adapt collectively, because, whether we are rich or poor, earth is our unique home!"
You can watch him speak at the press conference here.
