Launching the 350 Asian Youth Climate Workshop!

Posted on: August 17, 2009

Poznan YouthWe’re excited to launch the 350 Asian Youth Climate Workshop applications today! Check out the “Attend the Bangkok Summit” tab at the top of this web page to get more information and apply for the summit.

This October 2-5, 350.org is organizing an Asian Youth Climate Workshop in Bangkok, Thailand. This is a great chance for you to meet other young leaders from across East Asia and help build a growing Asian youth climate movement.

The workshop coincides with the United Nations inter-sessional climate meetings in Bangkok, one of the most important meetings this year before December’s Copenhagen summit, when world leaders will create an international climate treaty. Traditionally, Asian youth have played a small role in climate negotiations. For example, at the 2008 UN Climate Meetings in Poland only one youth from China attended, compared to the nearly 100 youth from the United States. The meetings in Bangkok are an unprecedented opportunity for youth from across Asia to learn about the international climate process, make their voices heard to world leaders, and lay the groundwork for a lasting climate movement in the region.

There’s limited space, so apply now!
