As part of the “Road to Copenhagen” campaign, Clean Energy Nepal (CEN) and Nepalese Youth for Climate Action (NYCA) are carrying out a “Basecamp to Copenhagen” campaign in which ten youths will trek to Everest Basecamp. This campaign team will carry out awareness to school students and local communities on climate change and its impacts on the Himalayas, in the mountain ecosystems and livelihoods. In addition, this campaign team will collect signatures, make a documentary, and take photographs that relate to climate change issues. The outputs of this trek will be displayed at the COP 15 in Copenhagen this December.
Participants should commit the first week of November to December 12th (Global Day of Action on Climate Change). Those who have a passion for and skills in photography and videography are highly encouraged to apply. Travel and accommodation expenses will be covered by the campaign’s organizers. However, those who would like to fund themselves, fully or partially, are most welcome.
Please send a letter of interest no later than November 4, 2009 to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. The letter should highlight your campaigning experiences, skills in youth and climate change, your trekking experiences (optional), your age, gender, education, and available commitment time for the involvement in this campaign.
