Opportunity for Youth and Young Adults to Participate in Climate Negotiations
The World Council of Churches (WCC) has teamed up with the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) to create “Youth for Eco-Justice.” This program, intended for Christians from 18-30 years old, will take place in conjunction with the 2011 United Nations climate negotiations. After a two-week training and immersion program in Durban, South Africa, the youth will begin projects of their own in their home countries.
The application process is simple, with the deadline being August 15. This life-changing program is meant to focus on environmental issues and bring youth into the debate. With the environment ever-changing, hopefully the youth will be able to make a change in the world.
