Next Generation of World Leaders Think Tank on Climate

2013 ‘Next Generation of World Leaders Think Tank on Climate Change’

The World Climate Change Challenge is seeking young people aged 18-28 years old to represent their Pacific Nation at the inaugural ‘Next Generation of World Leaders Think Tank’ which will be held in November 2013 in Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam.

The 2013 ‘Next Generation of Global Leaders Think Tank’ will bring together 200 young people from a diverse array of countries, cultures and social standings, in an attempt to find the answers as to why it is still socially acceptable within almost all our global communities, for individuals & businesses, to maintain excessively large carbon footprints; and, what needs to be done to change the present social acceptance of these excessive carbon footprints, into that of it being totally socially unacceptable for individuals or businesses, to be the cause, or source, of size-able green house gas emissions.

Mr. Paul Phillips, the founding Director of the World Climate Change Challenge, states, “this generation of world leaders, as can be seen from previous United Nations Climate Change Meetings & Forums, show little interest, or motivation, in tackling green house gas emissions, in any meaningful way. Preferring instead to focus their attention & resources towards a problem that is impacting voters today: The Global Economy. He goes on further to say, “in 20-30 years from now, when the disastrous effects of this lack of action is causing catastrophic human disasters on a daily basis, today’s world leaders will either be dead, or in nursing homes. The world leaders of tomorrow, young people 18-28 today, will by then have inherited these mammoth environmental problems. Problems, which by this time, may be almost impossible to resolve”.

“Hence!” Mr. Phillips states, “the Leaders of Tomorrow, must get involved today, in the decision making processes which will determine the condition of the planet they are destined to inherit. They cannot afford to wait 20 years for the passing of the baton.

”Mr. Phillips is asking young people who are keen to have a hand in shaping the future of this planet, to seriously consider nominating to represent their country or state. He is expecting as many as 150 representatives from the 192 member states of the United Nations and a further 50 young people who are keen to represent their International Climate Change Organizations or Associations.
