The International Climate Change Conference for Children is back. Hosted this year in Kampala, Uganda on 9 April 2015, it brings together 200 child delegates across 20 schools, representing diverse countries from around the world. The Conference is co-organized by Uganda’s Little Hands Go Green and My Kid is a Superstar in partnership with the National Environmental Management Authority, the National Forest Authority, and the National Council for Children.

Over the course of a single day, delegates will discuss how they themselves, as children, may search for solutions in combatting climate change for a planet they will one day inherit. Among other themes, the conference will focus on how children could make themselves better heard when voicing perspectives on climate change, while strengthening a sense of environmental stewardship among peers. Furthermore, it will showcase innovations in Information and Communications Technology that assist children in forging sustainable solutions, amid a host of other initiatives fostered for, and by children.
