Asian Youth Climate Workshop Begins!
Posted October 2, 2009on:
A big welcome to all of our youth delegates to Bangkok! The Asian Youth Climate Workshop begins today with nearly 100 youth from over 15 Asian countries (and international youth delegates from around the world) joining 350.org in Bangkok for a busy weekend of sharing skills, gaining knowledge, and preparing for the October 24 International Day of Climate Action.
But we won’t only be waiting until October 24 to take action: that begins here in Bangkok! Yesterday, our allies at the Rainforest Action Network lead a great event to call for the protection of forests and indigenous peoples’ rights. This morning, friends at the Asian Peoples Movement on Climate Change lead a colorful and vibrant march to the United Nations building to call for climate justice and to get the World Bank out of climate change. Throughout the weekend, 350.org will also be taking action, and on Monday, October 5 we will join a major climate march through Bangkok.
If you’re here at the meetings, you can find the 350 delegation at the UN headquarters this Friday afternoon and then at the Wat Ben School throughout the weekend. For a complete schedule of events, please email Jamie Henn, jamie[@]350.org.
