Learning-To teach the youths and young leaders in the Asia-Pacific region about the latest developments in environmental matters. For this Education track, we would be focusing on Energy for a Low Carbon Future, Green Economy to eradicate poverty and Environmental Law & Governance for this 2011conference.
Voicing Out-The coming Rio + 20 Summit in 2012 is an important date of decision for the whole of mankind. We would provide a platform for the youth from all over Asia Pacific to discuss and craft a document to be submitted in the2012 summit agenda so that their views can be heard.
Taking Action-Bringing the youth of Asia Pacific together for this green agenda would forge new relationships, induce the development of new exciting ideas and provide strong follow up on these projects even after attendees return home.
