Young people from all over India are making a trip to Delhi for a week at Badlaav Climate Camp. The camp is designed to give young people in India the chance to meet with politicians, network with inspiring speakers, learn about opportunities for green jobs within a green economy, gain skills from training workshops and even relax listening to popular music performances.
Organizers from the Indian Youth Climate Network (IYCN) along with community members and volunteers have worked very hard to get the event that will run from July 18th – July 23rd together. The need for action is the motivation for Badlaav, and the IYCN is counting on a spark from the young attendees to push the issues from action to achievement. India is largely ignored in the climate debate and when it comes to emerging climate change technologies. Badlaav is striving to change that.
When the world’s leaders meet at Copenhagen this January for UN Climate Negotiations India will have a little more help because of Badlaav 09.
