    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Each year youth organisations from all over the globe come to the UNFCCC Climate Change negotiations to platform youth voices on the international stage. Youth organisations are continually pushing for more ambitious climate targets and fairer policies. Attending the event is easier for some countries than others. For organisations from the Global South, funding can be harder to secure and this takes months of budgeting, fundraising, planning and preparations.

    This year COP25 was supposed to take place in Santiago, Chile, the first to take place in the Global South since 2014. This is a great location as it was more accessible to Global South countries which gave them more capacity to get involved and raise important environmental issues in the region, such as the recent major oil spill and decimation of the Amazon.

    However, COP25 was cancelled last minute by President Piñera due to upset caused by his neoliberalist regime. Now the COP has been relocated to Madrid on the exact same dates, meaning that Youth organisations have to find thousands of Euros to buy flights and accommodation in a much more expensive city, in a matter of weeks. Most won't be able to go, and almost all will be taking a smaller delegation. This gives them a quieter voice during the negotiations and allows leaders to carry out negotiations with less pressure and engagement from civil society. This is the last thing we need during a climate crisis.

    Please give generously so we can send Brazilian activists Engajamundo to Madrid and give Global South youth a voice at COP25. We need them!

    £978 = 1 GS delegate at COP25

      We have got enough to send our delegate to COP25! Thanks so much to everyone who donated and shared, words can't express how much it means! After we have covered the Just Giving fees, any additional money will go to the pot to send delegates from Global South organisations to COP26 in Glasgow next year.
