cc -- PLEASE VOTE - California Climate Champions Youth Message for G8 Environment Ministers Meeting in Kobe, Japan Posted: 09 Apr 2008 07:40:26
Are you interested in helping young people engage others and take action on climate change? We hope you are and will take the time to help decide the message that will be taken by Climate Champions to Kobe, Japan. Through a partnership with the British Council, ARB is working with the Climate Champions program to encourage the involvement of California’s young people in climate change issues. The Climate Champions are young people of high school age, selected to help spread the word about climate change and to get others involved. The California Climate Champions were recently in London, meeting with Climate Champions from 12 other countries to develop a message about climate change that they will deliver at the youth summit portion of the Environment Ministers' meeting of the G8+5 countries in Kobe, Japan, at the end of May. The Climate Champions developed three messages, but only one of these messages can be delivered in Kobe, so they invite you (and everyone you know!) to vote on your favorite message. Please click on the link below to cast your vote: http://www.britishcouncil.org.br/champions/the_kobe_poll.asp >>And then forward this email to others!<< Throughout the next year, the Climate Champions will serve as climate issue liaisons in their communities and engage with others to make a difference, through local, national, and international projects. They also will participate in a “climate camp” in California and engage in an online peer network to share ideas and encourage others to get involved.
