Giving thanks to the Conference of Youth
I’m here at the 6th Conference of Youth(COY6). Its been an amazing 3 days. We’ve heard success stories on inspiring others to join the climate movement, been inspired(further) by people like Tony Oposa, and most importantly, given us more reason and ability to take action against climate change.
The workshops and the efforts put in to create COY are phenomenal, considering the fact that the organizers have their own lives, jobs and families that are all put aside just for the event. This absolute commitment that these people have towards tackling climate change is truly commendable and they really deserve a big hand, hug and many heartfelt thankyous.
And now, this post hereby thanks and encourages as many people as possible to stand up and do whatever they can for the climate cause.
And just as a sidenote, we had a lot of fun in the process. The people that you meet are fascinataing, creative and have tons of ideas. They know how to party too. Thanks to the Mexican volunteers for cranking up the volume of the radio in the public bus for us to get the COP journey and party started.
