Asian Young Leaders Climate Forum

Asian Young Leaders Climate Forum

Applications are now invited from young New Zealand leaders to attend the Asian Young Leaders Climate Forum (AYLCF) "Tomorrow, together, now" to be held in Bogor, Indonesia from 3 - 7 December 2007.

British Council New Zealand will send a delegation of two young leaders, aged between 18 and 30, to represent New Zealand at the forum.

Young leaders from a variety of backgrounds including business, the arts, politics, NGOs, science, law as well as student leaders are invited to apply to ensure a wide selection of views are represented.

A key objective of the forum is to write a strategic plan for climate security in the East and South-East Asia region informed by the views of an emerging generation of young leaders. Organised by the British Council and the WWF-Indonesia, the forum will kick-start wider regional activity to build and sustain networks and future engagement.

Following the forum, a communiqué representing views of the group will be presented to the 13th Conference of the Parties (COP 13) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to be held in Bali, Indonesia from 12 - 14 December 2007.

"It's a wonderful opportunity for young New Zealand leaders to contribute meaningfully in a high-level regional forum on a topic affecting us all," says Paula Middleton, Director, British Council New Zealand.

Applications to be made online at www.britishcouncil.org/nz-opportunities-climateforum.htm

The deadline for applications is 5.00pm on Monday 22 October.
