In the fight against climate change, young people are increasingly recognized as indispensable agents of change, playing pivotal roles as negotiators, innovators, and entrepreneurs. However, they often encounter barriers such as lack of resources and support. In response, the Government of Italy and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), alongside various partners, have launched the 2024 Call for Solutions under the Youth4Climate initiative.

Structured as an innovation challenge, the Youth4Climate Call For Solutions aims to identify, support, and scale youth-led climate breakthroughs across five thematic areas: Climate and Environment Literacy, Sustainable Energy, Food and Agriculture, Nature Assets, and Sustainable Consumption and Production.

Successful applicants will receive funding of up to US$30,000, access to technical support, mentorship, and storytelling opportunities. Proposals, accepted in English, French, or Spanish, can be implemented over a maximum of 24 months.
