REVIEW FOR COPENHAGEN BASE CAMP BY THE INDIAN YOUTH CLIMATE NETWORK
The Indian Youth Climate Network is organising the Copenhagen Base Camp at Taramati Baradari from 14th December to 16th December from 9am to 6pm.
The Indian Youth Climate Network (IYCN) is an organisation that aims at uniting Indian youth and youth-oriented organisations concerned about climate change. IYCN works to generate awareness and establish a consensus on what role India should play in the global debate on the issue, and how it should address domestic concerns of climate justice and adaptation.
The event is intended to bring together students and young professionals from across the country for 3 days of learning and fun. It will bring students, environmentalists, academicians and politicians onto a common platform to discuss and debate on various issues of environment and climate change.
Some of the signature events featured at the Copenhagen Base Camp include -
Indian negotiators will be on the hot seat facing questions from youth across the country. This will be followed by hot seats based on different regions where local politicians, policy makers and environmentalists will be invited for a series of interviews and panel discussions.
Communication From COP
The Indian Youth Delegation sent to COP will send constant updates from Copenhagen so that those attending the camp here can respond to them immediately with their opinions.
