Climapolis–Youth in Climate Action
About the Event
AUA student Narek Ohanyan is sponsored by UNICEF to attend COP27, the annual global Climate Change Conference. During his talk at AUA, he discusses his mission on this trip and presents the board game “Climapolis” which he designed for school students and young adults (12+). The game is about climate adaptation based on achieving 12 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Participants also have the opportunity to play “Climapolis,” which will be made public for the first time. Mkrtich Dallakyan, programme officer (Climate Change), Adolescent and Community Participation, UNICEF, delivered a brief presentation about our Climate Change programme.
