COP-Under-18 Interactive Video Conference
Nov 14, 2012 - 11:00 AM-12:30 PM (Eastern)
COP Under-18 is a youth conference to correspond with the COP18 conference in Qatar this December. The conference will be an alternative to the UN-organized event for youth who are interested in discussing the issues of climate change and environmental policy. This conference is open to classes across Canada. This alternative conference will generate far less carbon emissions by its online nature, and will aim to foster open dialogue about the pressing global issues surrounding climate change that are often discussed behind closed doors at UN conferences.
During the morning session of this conference, expert panelists will be guest speakers to engage with students about issues concerning climate change. Students will spend the afternoon collaborating on a document that states the position of the participants on climate change with commitments to action. This document will be presented to policy-makers at COP-18 by a representative attending the conference.
This interactive video conference is sure to be exciting and inspiring! We hope you'll join us!
