Denmark’s Youth Climate Council

Last updated: 21 August 2023

The Youth Climate Council is an advisory board to the Danish Minister of Climate, Energy and Utilities that serves as a mouthpiece for Danish youth to bring innovative thinking and inputs to the climate politics. The initiative was deployed at the request of the Danish Youth Delegates and the Youth Council (an umbrella organisation of 75 youth-led Danish organisations, including for example scouts, student councils and all political youth parties). The Council currently consists of fifteen young volunteers with different educational and occupational backgrounds responsible for collecting the views of young people all over Denmark in order to formulate concrete proposals. The Council can feed these proposals directly into the development of climate policies, most notably through meetings with the Minister.
