“No thanks” Youth Action on YuFuGe Day at COP18 in Doha!

November 29, 2012

Every COP meeting features a Youth and Future Generations (YuFuGe) Day. Doha is no exception. This year, the youth NGOs (YOUNGOs) conducted an action which involved thanking Parties for their contributions to success in the negotiations and saving the future of the world – only to realize a fundamental mistake… that it was a misguided conclusion. They proceeded to exclaim “No thanks!” to each and every failure in the negotiations.

Though quieter than those experienced at COP15 in Copenhagen and COP17 in Durban (in my experience at least), I thought this action was rather well thought out and had more substance than some others I’ve seen. Good job folks!
