From Qatar: COP18 UN Climate Change Conference 2012
COP18 (29/11/12) – Aaron Ashley Dublenho, Jennifer Switzer and Derek Wonk from Initiatives for Sustainable Education talk about the work they are doing at COP trying to contribute to the decision making process on climate change.
They stress that young people will be the ones who inherit the planet and will therefore inherit the problems.
They talk about their work bringing youth together in Canada to help make their voice louder so that they can take their views to the government.
They criticism the UN’s decision to allow under-18s into the conference for only one day and say that the lack of youth inclusion in the process helps to create a feeling of intergenerational irresponsibility.
