Youth Dialogue on Climate Change

350 Singapore and Young NTUC have organised a Youth Dialogue on Climate Change this Thursday, 24 April, from 7-9pm. More details below!

Details of the Dialogue

In March, countries met in Bonn, Germany to discuss the next steps towards the new 2015 climate Agreement . This talk will discuss recent developments on mitigation pledges, key challenges ahead and conclude with thoughts on the likely outcome of the climate negotiations. A panel consisting of an expert in adaptation from WWF International and the Director of the 3P Network Division at the National Climate Change Secretariat will also discuss recent scientific and social developments at the IPCC and in Singapore. Students will not only get to lead in discussions, but challenge and ask questions of the panel. This is the second Youth Dialogue on climate change organized by 350 Singapore and Young NTUC, the first was on 16 February 2013 and was attended by 50 people (see: http://www.eco-singapore.org/community-outreach/youth-dialogue-climate-change-doha-cop-18/).
