A long week…

We had a representative from the Indonesian Youth Delegation attend the meeting with the executive secretary of the UNFCCC. It was a very informative meeting, although unconclusive. It was important to have a youth presence at this meeting and I’m so proud of all the youth around the world who are standing up to make a difference.

Overall, what an impressive, yet long week. I’ve never seen such stamina and determination in such a short amount of time by so many young people. Ahhhh, to be young again! Many of the youth attending this conference are here at their own expense and are working so incredibly hard to ensure that our government does something more constructive about reducing Canada’s emissions. The weekend will be just a slight slow down before the big-wigs arrive next week. This is where the real action will take place!

I’m looking forward to seeing how this COP really works. It’s very exciting being here…there’s a lot of action and a lot of media. Lets hope we’ll get even more media attention next week!
