In 2019, the Video Competition is jointly organized to broaden the scope of entries and mobilize the global youth along the lines of the Global Climate Action Summit called in September by the United Nations Secretary General, António Guterres. It is led by the Secretariats of the three environmental conventions, the United Nations Climate Change (UNFCCC), Convention on Biological Diversity (UNCBD), and the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD).
The final three winners will be invited to attend the UN Climate Change Conference in Santiago, Chile (COP 25). Their videos will be presented in front of a global audience, and the winners will be afforded the opportunity to work with the UN Climate Change’s communications team covering highlights of COP25.
This year’s Global Youth Video Competition is divided into 3 categories:
We are looking for videos that showcase fantastic ideas that have already been implemented into concrete actions both in cities and locally which mitigate and/or help communities adapt to climate change.
We need to mobilize and catalyze action around our concerns on health, nutrition, and food systems, and to raise awareness on how to conserve and sustainably use biodiversity for our well-being.
We need a rich land able to produce good food and absorb carbon, forests to prevent erosion and help regulate the climate, and diverse balanced ecosystems to maintain the life on land.
To participate in the competition, it is necessary to be between 18 and 30 years old and submit a maximum 3-minute video on one of the 3 categories.

Entrants must submit a maximum 3-minute video by 28 July 2019.
