Dear Youth Climate Plan, Thank you very much for your proposal on the “Youth action on climate change” contest. Your proposal was among the 15 which the Fellows pre-selected for the Judges but unfortunately, it didn’t make it to the semi-finals. The ambition and thoroughness of it were particularly appreciated by the Judges. This is a carefully thought-out proposal and the graphic explanation was particularly impressive. However, the Judges also noted that the proposal was probably far too ambitious and far-reaching to have any impact in the next few years, where the most action is needed. Agreeing on the scientific parameters, for instance would be particularly challenging. Moreover, the idea seemed too ‘conventional’ in its use of plans, conferences, steering committees… for bringing about change and ambition. It does not seem like the natural way young people convene today, and other arenas for ‘classical’ youth cooperation already exist. Thanks again for your contribution, and best of luck in participating in future CoLab contests or taking this idea to other avenues! Best, Antoine on behalf of the “Youth action” fellows
