If you are concerned about climate change, or simply want to know more about issues surrounding climate change, and you are young, this might be of interest to you. I have been to one of the events when I was back in Malaysia. This actually one of few things that will lift your spirit, if you think effort surrounding the issue is highly deficient on the international and local stage.
Empower for the Planet: MyCJN-Wild Asia Young Environmental Leaders Symposium
I am but one person – what can I do to stop climate change?
Plenty. Here’s how.
The Malaysian Youth Climate Justice Network (myCJN) and Wild Asia are daring young people to take on the challenge of becoming an agent of change, a catalyst to action, to address the most important issue facing our generation. We are organizing an empowerment conference where you will have the opportunity to learn skills and tools you’ll need to spearhead your own climate change initiatives that will grow the movement. Wilson Ang of Eco Singapore will be our lead trainer and we will be covering topics such as project strategizing, project managment, volunteer recruitment, media campaigning and leadership development.
Date: 28 – 30 August 2009
Venue: Jungle Lodge, Ulu Gombak, Selangor
Fee: Rm120 (inclusive of food and accommodation)
If you are someone who feels strongly about climate change and the state of your own future, come join us and the global youth climate movement in standing up to answer this call to action. The time is now.
