8 Aug 2011 - 12 Aug 2011The Youth Forum 2011 is being held to celebrate the International Year of Youth 2010/11 and International Youth Day 12 August. The Forum is another event in the series of youth activities designed to help build the next generation of leadership in sustainable mountain development and climate change adaptation in ICIMOD?s regional member countries. The event will take place in the context of the upcoming UNFCCC COP 17 meeting in December 2011 and Rio+20 meeting in 2012.
We offer a unique opportunity for students and speakers from across the Asia Pacific region to engage each other in addressing the challenges of applying and adapting broader principles of sustainability, climate change, and mountain development to locale-specific solutions. The emphasis will be on issues specific to mountain development in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan region and beyond, especially in the context of ICIMOD?s work and ongoing and planned regional and global processes on relevant topics More Information
