A digital mapping project created by the UN Children's Fund, or UNICEF, is helping young people around the world identify climate issues in their communities and find ways to address them.

Called "Act now for tomorrow", the tool is reportedly engaging 500 young people from 65 countries.

The project is one of many being presented at the UN climate change conference, known as COP21.

Stephanie Coutrix is in Paris and met with two of the seven young climate ambassadors who are personally impacted by extreme weather conditions.
