Youth Innovation on Climate Change by YNCCC
Jun 10, 2015
Dear Naham, Thanks for your proposal to the Climate CoLab. I'm one of the catalysts, helping provide comments and feedback, in an effort to help strengthen proposals. Thank you for sharing your proposal for a youth-driven forum addressing climate change, the UN negotiations, and beyond. A few brief suggestions to help strengthen your proposal: A) You may wish to address how YNCCC either differs from YOUNGO (UNFCCC observer constituency of youth non-governmental organizations, https://unfccc.int/cc_inet/cc_inet/youth_portal/items/6795.php) or relates to other youth-led organizations identifying as YOUNGO in the UN negotiations. B) In the timeline section you reference that YNCCC's geographic focus may be in Africa. If this is the case, you may wish to state this focus in the summary introduction as well. C) Please fill out the section on how YNCCC's work aims to effect change on the climate issue ("Actions...") Thanks for your contribution!
