Language barrier


I would just like to reiterate how lucky we are that COY9/CEE Power Shift/COP19 all use English as the main language, even though we are in Poland. I wonder if there would be more Polish youth engagement if CEE Power Shift was separate and they were able to discuss all this amazing information we are learning in Polish? I also wonder how would that change the outcomes and direction of the workshops and other discussions at the conference? Interesting to consider. I will be closely examining language barriers at the COP19 conference!
