Last summer, IDEA co-hosted the Climate Advocacy Institute, which brought together more than 80 youth climate activists from around the world. One of the graduates from the institute, Bhuwan from Nepal, has since been involved in several campaigns and movements focused on climate change, including the Nepal Development Foundation (NDF).
The NDF is organizing the Climate Leadership Camp (CLC), a four-day camp that will equip participants with the required knowledge and skills to be a climate activist at the grassroots level. The CLC will provide training that will help leaders promote discussion about important issues in their own communities and advocate for positive change. Participants will learn how to design advocacy campaigns, gain media attention, and organize community efforts. The camp will be held April 3-5, 2010, and applications are due March 26, 2010.
