Hello, we are Klimadelegation e.V.!

Kli­madel­e­ga­tion e.V. is a polit­i­cal­ly inde­pen­dent asso­ci­a­tion of young peo­ple. We see our­selves as a del­e­ga­tion for the cli­mate and are involved in polit­i­cal and social process­es at the inter­face between inter­na­tion­al pol­i­tics and local, nation­al and Euro­pean process­es. We advo­cate sus­tain­able cli­mate pro­tec­tion as well as cli­mate and inter­gen­er­a­tional jus­tice. For us, a glob­al approach, inter­na­tion­al under­stand­ing, tol­er­ance and sci­ence-based deci­sions are fundamental.

Our goal is to work towards a cli­mate-friend­ly and sus­tain­able sys­tem and to main­tain a plan­et worth liv­ing on for present and future gen­er­a­tions. We are com­mit­ted to ensure that the inter­ests of young peo­ple are respect­ed and tak­en more seri­ous in polit­i­cal deci­sions. Since 2012, we have been tak­ing part in the UN cli­mate nego­ti­a­tions. Each year we bring the voice of young peo­ple and future gen­er­a­tions to the nego­ti­at­ing table. In addi­tion, we report on the nego­ti­a­tions and cli­mate pol­i­cy process­es, aim­ing to sen­si­tize young peo­ple in par­tic­u­lar to the glob­al effects of cli­mate change and moti­vate them to get involved. Our vol­un­teer work fur­ther includes cli­mate edu­ca­tion, e.g. through lec­tures and work­shops, as well as project man­age­ment and work in pub­lic rela­tions. We are always open to projects and coop­er­a­tions, as long as they are com­pat­i­ble with our val­ues and goals.
