Remember, the application can only be completed with your parents’/guardians’ consent.
As part of the application, you will be asked for:
– Details about yourself
– Contact details for your parents/guardians
– Information about climate or environmental projects you may have been involved with.
– A one-minute video pitch:
You are asked to submit one-minute video telling RTE about your interest in climate issues and why you would like to take part in the Youth Parliament on Climate.
