Youth Climate Report partners with universities, colleges and institutes to match researchers, scientists and academics working in the various fields and disciplines related to climate change, sustainability and biodiversity with our curious, enthusiastic and trained youth reporters who conduct our video interviews.
If you, your faculty, department or institution would be interested in learning how to participate as an interview subject in Youth Climate Report, please contact us.
In 2011, our reporters worked with the following institutions to present the work of their science researchers and academics to a global audience through our YouTube channel and our daily film presentations at COP17 in Durban, South Africa:
- Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Dr. William Collins, Professor-in-Residence, Department of Earth and Planetary Science, and senior scientist and department head, Earth Sciences Division)
- University of British Columbia (Dr . Stewart Cohen, Adjunct Professor with the Department of Forest Resources Management, and Professor William Rees, Professor in the School of Community and Regional Planning)

In 2012, with the support of our donors and sponsors and the United Nations Environment Programme, Youth Climate Report participated at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development in June in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and at the UN Framework Conference on Climate Change (COP18) in Qatar in December.
New for 2012, reports commissioned by our partner institutes catalyzed the production of interview reports with researchers, scientists and academics working at institutions, colleges and universities across the Global South.
In 2013 we will participate at COP19 in Warsaw.
