COP@Home project was launched in 2017during COP23Fiji that took place in Bonn German to bring access of the International negotiation process, Conference of Parties (COP) to the many young people unable to travel to such meetings. With Climate change affecting the present and future generations, young people are intermediaries between these generations and have an increasingly vital linkage role to play in ensuring that the present generation hands over a clean and habitable earth to its offspring. While there is consensus on the need to “act now” against the impacts of climate change, people in Uganda have little or no knowledge on the interactions of climate change and their livelihoods. In recent years youth across the world have been organizing themselves in coalitions in response to the climate change challenge.

At the COP17, the UNFCCC awarded the Youth NGOs (YOUNGO) a constituency status in the Climate change process, almost 20 years after YOUNGO was identified as one of nine constituencies in the Climate change process under Agenda 21.
