The most global action on Climate Change in the world this year – Call On COP

The One Young World Summit 2015 is where young leaders from every country in the world will address their Heads of Government on mainstream media two weeks before the Paris Climate Conference - COP21. This is your chance to be part of it.

20 years of UN climate negotiations have been unable to produce a legally binding and universal agreement. COP21 is our opportunity to avoid catastrophic climate change.

Young leaders can help ensure that their governments act.


Your involvement


  • At the One Young World Summit 2015, one young leader from every country will deliver a 3-minute speech addressing their head of government as part of Call On COP.
  • One Young World Counsellors including Kofi Annan, Sir Bob Geldof and Professor Muhammad Yunus have agreed to deliver messages and lend their stature to the movement.
  • Call On COP will be broadcast on international, national and regional news outlets worldwide.
  • It will also be livestreamed on YouTube for 24 hours and viewed by millions of people across the world.


If you would like to represent your nation and persuade Heads of Government to reduce the harmful effects of climate change, please apply to be a part of Call On COP. This is your chance to make history.
