Have a look around our venue. Here’s Ros to guide you through…
Heba: We’ve arrived in Copenhagen! Jacques (our Sound Engineer) and I arrived late last night in the Danish capital and we’re ready to hit the ground running – the youth debate is tomorrow (Thursday 17th December).
Today we awoke to news that Environment ministers are holding talks here against the backdrop of threats of large-scale protests by environmental groups. Talks are still deadlocked over emission cuts and financial aid for poorer countries.
We had a great response to out discussion last Friday on the growing friction between rich and poor nations on who will foot the bill for any initiatives, or agreements that may come through from this summit. Perhaps we should continue with that discussion?
Tonight the whole team will meet some of the British Council’s Climate Change Champions to discuss potential areas of discussion for tomorrow’s debate and broadcast.
So continue to send us your ideas. What should we be talking about?
WHYS will be in Copenhagen next week at the above rather nice venue talking with an audience of 800 or so predominantly young people who care about climate change.
The agenda – as always – will be down to the audience in the room, and the wider WHYS community. We will (very unusually) have to pre-record so if you want to take part let us know as soon as you can.
