(GERMANY)

The UN Climate Change Conference (COP23) is seeking volunteers to help out at the November event and ultimately go on and become sustainability ambassadors.

As well as providing support during COP23 in Bonn, carrying out various administration tasks, guiding visitors or ‘working on sustainability and greening projects’, volunteers will be able to access seed funding to lead recycling projects and other initiatives in their communities.

International stakeholders – representing governments, business, and civil society – will gather in the German city between 6 and 17 November.

The United Nations Volunteers (UNV), in partnership with the secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement (UNFCCC), will be accepting applications for the volunteer scheme from Monday 4 September.
