The Aotearoa Youth Leadership Institute is excited to announce that applications are now open for the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 20) in Lima, Peru. Taking place from 1-12 December 2014, this is a fantastic opportunity to gain an understanding of international negotiations and climate politics.
COP 20 will aim to get the world ready to agree on a new global climate agreement, to be signed at next year's COP 21 in Paris, France. Delegates will have the unique opportunity to watch these tense negotiations progress, and will be able to discuss their observations with government negotiators and NGO representatives on the ground.
A small delegation of New Zealand youth aged over 18 will be chosen to attend. Apply by Wednesday 22 October here.
