From Warsaw: COP19 UN Climate Change Conference 2013 in November 2013

COP19 (15/11/13) - Jessica Fritz from the International Federation of Red Cross & Red Crescent says the team are launching a new campaign centred around young people.

The aim is to draw attention to the humanitarian consequences of climate change and help young people to become “climate protectors”.

Fritz says the campaign will teach young people how to behave in extreme weather conditions and how they can help other people.

Events like COP helps to roll campaigns like this out to other countries.
