In the lead-up to COP27 (December 2022), approximately 75 young people contacted Green Africa Youth Organization (GAYO) for financial and logistical support to attend COP – far more than ever before. Of these 75 youths, GAYO was only able to support 6. This dramatic increase in interest led GAYO to investigate why so many young people want to attend COP and how these young climate activists can be supported – the basis for this report.
