CliMates Austria is a youth-led NGO addressing the climate crisis by influencing climate policy, giving a boost to changemakers, developing formats of climate education and writing about climate topics. Youth empowerment is key. We call ourselves a think-and-do-tank, because we have no time to lose, so let’s act fast. CliMates Austria is part of the international network CliMates with 6 branches around the world.
Here you can find a brief English overview over our four main projects. As mentioned above, we’re also working on other ways of empowerment and advocacy, which includes: partnering up with the youth-NGO PRIME MOVERS to set up a young changemakers gathering, developing the new NGO Akademie Ehrenamtlicher Vereine as a platform for skillsharing between youth organisations, connecting with and supporting others like Social Held (online platform to connect volunteers, companies and NGOs), giving other contributions a voice through guest articles on klimareporter.in (climate reporters project), using our network to bring climate leaders together etc.
Local Conference of Youth Austria
➤ LCOY Austria, also known as Austrian Youth Climate Conference
The LCOY Austria took place for the third time already on 6-8th November 2020. Through a program of keynotes, workshops, discussions and open spaces participants were able to take action on the climate crisis, raise their voice and network. Most of the conference was held online, more at www.lcoy.at. The LCOY Austria is part of an international network of LCOYs.
UNFCCC youth delegates
➤ UNFCCC youth delegates represent the voice of the Austrian youth at UN-climate conferences
Every year, four youth delegates go to the UNFCCC conferences (=Conference of the Parties, COP), sent by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology. CliMates Austria is in charge of leading and organising the program.
➤ School workshops for youth in Vienna & surroundings
Clim’School develops workshops on the climate crisis and climate policy and delivers them in Vienna and all of Austria. The goal is to raise awareness, share knowledge, create a learning environment through games and show ways of taking action. Reach out to us if you want to exchange on gamified climate education.
klimareporter.in (climate reporters)
➤ We write and produce content about the climate crisis, sustainable living and politics for the future. For young people, by young people!
We break down the complexity of climate and sustainability and present them in an interesting way. The young climate reporters create content that goes beyond the topics of mainstream media and adresses the climate generation, be it EU climate policy, sustainable recipes or book recommendations. All of this through the blog klimareporter.in (that’s the web address) and social media. We are also open to publish guest articles.
