Along with 400 other young delegates, two young Americans, Ruth Miller and Rayne Sullivan, will be taking part in “Youth4Climate: Driving Ambition” in Milan from 28 to 30 September as protagonists of a series of mini-videos that the Italian Embassy in Washington has launched on its social media channels @ItalyinUS and that will be running for the whole week. Along with Ambassador Mariangela Zappia, Ruth (originally from Alaska) and Rayne (originally from Hawaii) will be discussing the climate, youth issues, and the topics that will be on the agenda at Youth4Climate in Milan where, together with the other young delegates from all over the world, they will be putting forward proposals. These will then be presented to the ministers of the Pre-COP26, which will also be running in Milan from 30 September to 2 October, and then to the world leaders who will be meeting for COP26 in Glasgow, UK, from 1st to 12th November, in partnership with Italy.
In the first introductory video, Ambassador Zappia highlighted that “young people like Ruth and Rayne will be inheriting our planet”. She explained that “they must be an integral part of the debate and decision making”.
The mini-video series will be available on all the Embassy’s social media platforms:
