To do so, the REN21-inspired youth-led initiative gathered young citizens to discuss the ways of ways to reshape the roadmap to carbon neutrality of cities around the globe, for example in Milan, São Paulo, and Amsterdam. At COP26, EYEN and BRICS YEA (BRICS Youth Energy Agency) will share key findings and invite young people to discuss the results during a live expert discussion via an interactive platform.Meet the speakers below.
